Place pasta, salt and pepper, and water into the pasta cooker, close lid and cook in microwave for 13 to 14 minutes (longer is softer) 800 watts*

Remove from microwave, reverse the lid, drain most of the excess water from the pasta cooker, leaving just a few drops.

Add pesto to the pasta and mix. The extra water will thin the sauce just a touch.

Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and serve.

NOTE: this recipe can also be made in the steam case. Adjust cooking time to 11 – 12 minutes at 800 watts.
