Directions:

1. In a medium to large-size bowl, combine pasta and water. While completely submerging the noodles in the water is preferable, it will also work if you have a smaller bowl.

2. Cook pasta in 1 minute increments for 3 minutes, stirring after each minute. When the noodles have softened and can be completely submerged in the water, microwave again for three minutes for al dente noodles.

5. Cover the container with plastic wrap, and make two incisions.

6. Remove pasta from microwave. Do not drain.

7. Microwave garlic and onions on 70% power in 1 minute intervals. Repeat three times (stir after each minute to ensure that garlic and onions do not burn.)
