tired of dirtying every pan in the kitchen just to make spaghetti? look at this beautiful pasta cooking pot, designed by alain ducasse and patrick jouin, and distributed by alessi.

it lets you cook pasta and sauce all at once. the starches are not discarded with the cooking water but instead are totally absorbed by the pasta, and the same holds true for the sauce ingredients.

follow this formula for success: first, put the dry pasta in the pot; then, add the ingredients of whatever sauce you want to make; and finally, add 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 traditionally boil the pasta, your pasta with sauce is done and served directly at the table on the included trivet.
