Works For Me Wednesday - Keeping Noodles From Sticking

Join us for Works For Me Wednesday at We Are That Family.

Several months ago I was watching a Pam Cooking Spray commercial (which is suprising since I don't watch many commercials since we got a DVR) and I noticed them spraying Pam into boiling water before they added their spaghetti noodles.  I was kind of suprised and wondered why they would do that, I figured it had to be to keep the noodles from sticking to the bottom of the pan, which I tend to have trouble with when I cook macaroni and cheese.  So, of course I had to give it a try.  The next time I was boiling water for macaroni and cheese I sprayed a little Pam into the water before adding the noodles, and guess what???  The noodles didn't stick!  So this has become my go-to trick when cooking noodles, I spray in a little cooking spray before adding noodles.  So now my question is did everyone but me already know this?  Or are you all as shocked by it as me?

  1. Never thought of Pam (don't use it - just use an olive oil sprayer when necessary), but my mother brought me up on a dash of olive oil in the pot. Probably works the same way!
