Random cooking tip of the day...

I got this off of the TV a couple of months ago and keep meaning to share.  It may be common knowledge, I dunno but I just learned it and it's too cool.

You know how pasta, potatoes, rice, basically anything starch-y tends to boil over on the stove?  Just add a splash of Extra Virgin Olive Oil to the water.  It stops it from happening.   Seriously just a teeny amount like probably 1tsp or less.  Works like a charm.

  • Adding a bit of margarine also stops it from boiling over.

  • I always do that!  It also helps to keep the spaghetti from sticking together, which always seemed to be a problem I had!
