Well, I invested in the Ninja Cooking System and much to my surprise it has been amazing so far. I was somewhat of a skeptic...but wanting to believe. It does what is says it will do and then some. I am still in shock that I threw in dry pasta, water, spaghetti sauce and my own homemade uncooked frozen meatballs all in one pot and 30 minutes later; perfection! The pasta was al dente & the meatballs the moistest & tender I have ever had. Talk about convenience and ease, this product is it! Recipe from Ninja Cooking System Cookbook.
