Best Microwave Chef

June 2019

Voted by the student body as the Best Microwave Chef, I do humbly admit that I am a bit fanatic when it comes to my microwave pasta dishes.

I insist on using fusilli or go fancy with rigatoni (easy to plate, superb texture, great at absorbing sauce, and, can eat with a spoon in case you can’t find a fork), the best pesto sauce in a jar (by Jamie Oliver, of course), the precise amount of pasta water (an art, not a science) to warm up and thin out the pesto sauce, and my secret ingredient — home-grown basil (freshly clipped from my windowsill).

Pasta anyone? I bet you’ll ask for seconds!
