What is the fastest way to cook pasta? If no more heat is gained when water reaches the boiling temperature, why does my pasta recipe say to bring the water back to a rapid boil? My husband (the Ph.D.) says that we might as well turn the heat down because the water will not get any hotter - and the pasta won't cook any faster. I say it needs to boil! Can you settle this based on scientific fact while we both cook pasta using our own methods?
