“Then your pasta will be perfectly cooked every single time.”

The video gained plenty of attention online, gaining more than 30,000 likes. 

But in the comments, not all were convinced, with one writing: “This video needs a trigger warning for Italians.”

Another said: “Not all pasta cooks in the same time frame…awful advice for making good pasta.”

A third said: “You must be joking right? You can’t be serious. That’s not a good way to make pasta because you’re not releasing all of the starch from it – you guys. Just stick with the regular plan.”

Although some raved about the hack, with one commenting: “Been doing this for years!! Works for all pasta! Just adjust time sitting in water!!” 

@lanisch added: “I do this with eggs as well! Once the water boils, turn it off and let sit for 12 minutes. The PERFECT soft-boiled eggs every time!!”
