Unusual use of wooden chopsticks:
use wooden chopsticks to avoid pasta boiling over
(while you set the table, enjoy an antipasta, ...)
Adding salt or oil never seemed to help much. Boiling pasta in bigger volumes of water might do the trick (but i don't have a bigger pan free). Since a wooden spoon might warp, and a single spoon is less easier to balance the lid on, how about wooden chopsticks?
PS. I know, it's a lazy, no-step-instructable, but one has to start somewhere ... and i enjoy the use of this trick (tho i often still use a wooden spoon) and i enjoy sharing.
