Alessi Pasta Pot By Alain Ducasse And Patrick Jouin
For the pasta lovers! Usually when you cook the pasta and drain it, this removes the starch flavor. The unique design of this pot, by Alain Ducasse, enables you to cook the pasta in such a way that the pasta will absorb both the sauce and starch flavor, creating a deliciously unique flavor. Instructions from the website: "First you put the dry pasta in the “Pasta Pot”, sautéing lightly if you wish; then the various ingredients of whichever sauce you wish to make; then last comes water or broth, all at once or gradually, cooking everything together with the specially designed cover, stirring occasionally. in just a little more time than normally required to boil the pasta according to the classic method, your pasta with sauce is done and served directly at the table on the included trivet. a booklet containing a number of recipes developed by Ducasse himself is included." Voila! Easy to make, but still gourmet flavor pasta.
