We usually go through the hard work of putting the strainer in the sink and then draining the pasta from the pot but, have you ever tried the opposite? Rather than placing the pasta in the strainer and making it go cold. Simply place the strainer in the pot and drain the pasta. This way, you save yourself some time and keep the pasta warm at the same time.
