Tortellini with Grape Tomatoes: Take 2

Apparently cooking with oil in a hot pot is beyond dangerous (I kind of get that feeling sometimes, but you know what, sometimes I'm bad at not risking myself for science).

If you want an equally delicious and much safer version, you can simply boil a bit of water with salt in the hot pot and add the tomatoes, boiling them until they burst. Then you can strain them out of the water, add them to the tortellini, and then add the oil/salt/garlic. If the tortellini is already warm you can eat it as is, but otherwise you should heat it up for about 30 seconds in the microwave. It does taste slightly different, but is very good. Also, you won't have to worry about setting off the dorm's fire alarm, which everyone in the dorm will definitely appreciate.

After making this twice in two days my room still smells like Italian food.

We'll keep you updated on if we find any more ways to stew those tomatoes.
