I've been doing pasta my whole life and spent a lot of time with my stickler Italian grandfather and awesome Irish grandmother who was trained by her inlaws who really put her through the ringer back in those days but ultimately triumphed to become the best Italian cook in the family (she added some Irish secrets to her calzones)...

I was really anticipating a fail here. not bragging but it came out perfect... Two bags of the Garafolo Casarecce from Costco. I did a mix of water and homemade sauce just enough to cover it. High pressure 4 minutes. it had just enough al dente and no gooey-ness and absorbed some flavor from my sauce. I'm almost embarrassed to say that it was the best pasta I ever made short of when I've done it from scratch.

I got the 8 QT, btw.
