Overcooking the rice pasta is an easy thing to do but I have perfect pasta down to an art form as long as I don’t get distracted. Unfortunately, I’ve not been so good at the second part lately.

This one I blame partially on my husband. Because he left this out for me:

Mutant potato

He knows how easily I get distracted and suckered in. So this is why the pasta overcooked:

Stan the potato man

Luckily the friend coming for dinner didn’t notice the state of the pasta or was at least kind enough not to say anything. She did, however, chat with Stan momentarily.
