Once the pasta is cooked to your liking, take two seconds to do this little step that most home cooks skip: Before you drain the water, save a single cup. This starchy water can work wonders in sauces, binding the sauce and noodles together, and breaking down thicker sauces so they're less likely to clump at the bottom of your bowl.

How to Cook Pasta in the Microwave -- Cover pasta with water (about an inch or so above the pasta) in microwavable bowl. Microwave on high 10 min. (stir half way thru). If not done, you can microwave it a couple more min. When done, strain and use as desired. Simple, quicker than on the stovetop, and no pots to wash. :-)
