When I was living in my car, the biggest trouble for me was having a meal. I had to endure weeks of bread and cream cheese, because I had no idea what else I could eat without cooking. Eating out wasn’t an option either since it would cost me $20 a day just to keep myself from being hungry. So I had to find a solution. I found I could cook pasta with just a microwave! Here is how:

What you’ll need:
1. Microwave safe container
2. Access to a microwave (mine was college cafeteria or gas station)
3. Mini farfalles
4. Marinara of your choice
5. Shredded cheese of your choice
6. Water

Step 1:
Pour the farfalles into the container and fill it with water until all farfalles are completely submerged in water.

Step 2:
Let farfalles and water sit there for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Step 3:
Carefully extract the water out of the farfalles. You will find the farfalles have soften because it absorbed water. The color, however, is lighter than if boiled under the stove.

Step 4:
Pour Marinara sauce on the farfalles and shredded cheese.

Step 5:
Put them all in the microwave and turn it on for about 1-2 minutes.

Step 6:
Carefully remove your delicious pasta. Bon appetit!
