You should skip the last step. As an italian you should never rinse pasta in cold water. It A. cools the pasta down much quicker and B. you lose all the starch on the outside of the pasta that can help thicken ur sauce.

This was really quick.. and saved some of my time while making the pasta.. As the pasta masala was been cooked i just had to give one stir in between.. And the pastas was perfectly cooked.. without getting too soft or mushy.. In future i would prefer to use this method.. Thank you for this recipe..

Maybe I used the wrong pasta but this did not work for me. I had to cook it for over twice the recommend time and in the end the pasta was gummy. I could have cooked it in a pot in less time with better results. However, if a microwave is your only option this does sort of work.
