You know how when you hold a handful of spaghetti noodles over a boiling pot of water and snap them in half, pieces of pasta shrapnel fly all over your stove? Or in your eye? Maybe that last one’s just me. However, the solution is this: Don’t take the pasta out of the bag. Unless you’re not using the whole bag, then wrap some wax paper around the noodles, or stick them in a gallon baggie (or an old bread bag if your a cheapskate like me) before breaking. But seriously, hold the unopened bag (or box, I’ve done this with a box) and snap the pasta like you were going to, this time without the noodle shower.
