I wasn't as crazy about it for spaghetti, but I forgot to heat the noodles! I am used to thicker spaghetti noodles for spaghetti though so I don't think I'll use it this way again. But you can try it, you may like it. I heat the noodles in the microwave for a minute is all. If you want to cook them more than that, try a couple minutes. It doesn't take much.
