How To Cook Rice Cooker Pasta
If you are using hamburger or sausage take them out of the refrigerator about 30 minutes before you start cooking.
Add the pasta to the rice cooker. Some rice cookers come with a rubber pad to stop the pasta sticking to the bottom of the rice cooker. If you have one, use it, otherwise don’t worry about it. Cover the pasta with cold water.
Finely chop the onion and garlic. I used 6 cloves of garlic, and 1.5 onions. Add them to the rice cooker.
Chop the mushrooms into quarters and the bell pepper into small 1 cm squares. If you want a fine sauce, chop the vegetables into even smaller portions. Add these to the rice cooker.
Chop up the tomatoes. There is no need to remove the skins as they improve the texture of the final result. A tin of tomatos could be used as well.
Season the mixture with salt and pepper. And add the oregano, basil and vegetable stock.
If using cheese, chop it unto 1cm cubes and add it to the rice cooker.
Finally, add your meat.
Pour over a healthy amount of olive oil and mix up the food.
Turn on the rice cooker and let it all cook.
