Boil the water, salt it, drop in the pasta and they are done 2-4 minutes later.  Grab a sauce and you can have dinner on the table in less than 10 minutes.  And this is resto quality pasta, made in the same kitchens as their well reviewed restaurants. I always keep some pasta in the freezer for quick, excellent meals.
