Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • tablespoons (30g) feta cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3-5 basil leaves
  • (50 g) fettuccine pasta
  • 1/2 cup (75g)cherry tomatoes
  • salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste


  1. Place pasta, 250 ml water, a few drops of oil and a pinch of salt in the Anyday Medium Deep Dish. Stir to combine and cover with the lid (knob lifted).
  2. Cook in the microwave for 6-7 minutes, or until the pasta is 80% cooked. Strain out the liquid from the pasta and keep the pasta aside in a bowl or a pot. Save 50 ml water that would be required towards the end.
  3. Toss in extra virgin oil, chopped garlic and cherry tomatoes in the Anyday Medium Deep Dish. Cover and cook for 4-5 minutes or untilthe tomatoes are soft. Lightly mash the tomatoes with a fork.
  4. Add the pasta back to the dish along with feta, basil leaves, cracked black pepper and the reserved pasta water. Cover and cook for another 4 minutes, or until the water evaporates. Mix the pasta using a pair of tongs to get a creamy sauce.
