Dad's Simple Pasta Hack Is Such a Fantastic Time-Saver

When it comes to cooking, we love all things food. It doesn’t matter if it’s Chinese, Italian, or Japanese food. We’ll discuss it. We’ll also cover any hacks, tips, or tricks you’ve got to make the cooking process faster. That’s because we all have lives. Sometimes those lives get busy. Whether you’re a young single person struggling to balance work and social life or a middle-aged parent juggling multiple events throughout the week, hacks make life simpler. 

In a TikTok video by content creator @rolandpollard, he shares his pasta hack. Now we’ve seen a lot of hacks for every type of food. But we never thought of this one. Why haven’t we been doing this?

We are shocked that no one ever showed us how to use a colander this way. We’ve usually dumped the entire pot into it. This man has saved us some time and effort. Let’s see how the TikTok viewers reacted. User @Briana Delgado said, “So smart.” @AmandaAmeruoso wrote, “Literally, you just changed the game and my life.” @Rachel Porterfiel856 said, “Um yeah. I was 37 years old when I saw this! How freakin smart is that?” @Cadence 💋🤤 remarked, “Thank you, this is so useful.” @bri!! asked, “Why are y’all rinsing pasta? That’s the point of al dente friends. Then you don’t need to cool it down.” 

Well, people will debate about anything. If you want to rinse your pasta, go ahead, but it’s not a requirement. If you enjoyed this post and want to see more content, please visit @rolandpollard’s TikTok channel. You’ll be happy you did.
