When the water boils, add the salt! Add the pasta!! Stir.
Note: Strands of spaghetti usually stick out of the pot when they're placed in, but try your best to submerge them in the water.
Boil for the appropriate amount of time + 1 minute...So if the regular boiling time is 8 minutes, turn off the heat, cover with a lid and leave as is for 9 minutes.
Time's up! Drain in a colander and it's all done.
Try with instant ramen.
The previous photo is of a serving of Demae Ramen sold in German supermarkets. It's 69 cents = 85 yen haha.
Story Behind this Recipe
One day when I cooking my pasta as usual, the water boiled over, so I stopped the heat, and then forgot about it and left it like that. But the noodles cooked through.
Since you turn off the heat during the cooking process, it's easy to forget how long your pasta's been in the water, so don't forget to check the timer. Depending on the type of food you're cooking, you sometimes have to wrap the pot with a towel when you're trying to take advantage of residual heat, but that's not really necessary here!
