Shirley Richard

This is someone playing around, the only way this could happen would be if you set the pasta on fire...intentionally.

Shari H

Or if you have too small a pot, do not break the spaghetti, and have a propane stove which is set to high. Speaking from teenage experience here...I'm an excellent cook now though.

It happened to me once :/ You leave the burner on high and forgets to help the pasta slip down the pan, so it bends in half and the end of it touches the fire on the burner, then puf... everything is on fire. Pasta is a very flamable food.

I don't know about you, but that looks like incense to me until I see that those thingies you're supposed to light up are in a pasta pot, halfway submerged in water, and it seems to be in the kitchen. Just one quick question...why is the pasta on fire and the stove not? I just don't get it.
