Cooking pasta is like trying to please Goldilocks. Sometimes, you boil it for too long and other times, you don't boil it enough. It's very hard to get pasta ​just right​. Fortunately, TikTok user @leahmelle discovered that Barilla, the pasta company, knows our struggle, so they created a fun solution to this problem.

So that you always cook pasta for the right amount of time, Barilla created a Spotify account. It features playlists that correspond to different types of pasta, and each collection of songs lasts as long as it takes to cook that specific pasta shape. So once the playlist is over, your pasta is ready.

There is Boom Bap Fusilli, Mixtape Spaghetti, Moody Day Linguine, Best Song Penne, and more. Hopefully, as time goes on, they will continue to add additional pasta-inspired playlists.

Not only does this discovery make cooking pasta more fun — it ensures that you get it right each and every time.
