"Does it Work?": Pasta 'n' More

By Joe Terrell - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - "The Pasta 'n' More is the most exciting cooking pot to come along in years," exclaims TV personality Cathy Mitchell of As Seen on TV fame.

We decided to try it out! You get a recipe and instruction book, an extender that allows you to put two layers of food in the pasta cooker, a storage lid, a steamer stray for cooking vegetables or other foods and the main pasta cooker itself. Each handle is a two portion measure of spaghetti. The container it is FDA approved food grade cooking plastic.

Because there were not pictures in the instructions, it took a while to figure it out. In the end, simplicity won out. You simply pour your pasta in the main bowl, add water to the level called for in the instruction book, and pop it in the microwave. No lid or anything.

We were making great time, but then things slowed down. We cooked the pasta for 21 minutes in the microwave.

After straining off a little extra water and adding some cheese the pasta was perfect!

"Does it Work?" We give the Pasta 'n' More a "yes". The Pasta n' More is $20 at Bed Bath & Beyond.

    Deadly virus threatens local crawfish industry

    A deadly virus is threatening the crawfish industry in Southwest Louisiana. It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.
