How To Cook Egg Noodles In The Microwave

Greetings and welcome to our food blog! Today we’re going to show you how to make delicious egg noodles in the microwave in a quick and easy way. It’s a quick technique that guarantees consistently cooked noodles. So let’s get started!.

What Kind of Noodles to Use?

  • The traditional spaghetti noodle is long and thin, with a slightly thicker center than bucatini noodles.
  • Elbows: Although you probably picture the traditional macaroni and cheese, elbows are also incredibly versatile and adorable.
  • Campanelle – This gorgeous noodle is shaped like a screw. These noodles hold up really well, and the sauce seeps into every mouthwatering nook and cranny, so I think this sauce works really well here.
  • Fusilli: This is also referred to as Rotini in the US. These noodles may be seen floating around at a picnic when pasta salad is served.
  • Fettuccini is a pasta dish that is rarely found in Italy; it became popular in America. You may have had Fettuccini Alfredo a time or two! .
  • Linguine – Linguine means little tongues in Italian. It’s almost as flat as fettuccini, but not quite as wide. How fun is that? This type of noodle is common all throughout Italy.
  • Rigatoni: Throughout most of Italy, this stiff, tube-shaped pasta is popular. Rigatoni’s ridge is meant to help a thick sauce adhere to them, and it certainly does!
  • Gemelli – Gemelli comes from the Italian word twins. This noodle, which is typically served with pesto, forms a structure resembling DNA when two small noodles are twisted around one another.

How to Cook Noodles in the Microwave

  • In a large bowl that is safe to use in the microwave, mix your preferred pasta with water.
  • Microwave on high for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the microwave and stir. If any of the water has evaporated, add more and microwave for a further five minutes on high.
  • Remove from the microwave again and give it another stir. Pasta noodles should be microwaved in 1-minute intervals until they are tender.
  • Toss pasta together with your favorite sauce and enjoy!
