I think it's possible, but I've never tried.
Yes it is possible; I have done in many times. It is just like
cooking pasta in any other pot. I have an older bottom of the
line Black & Decker Rice cooker.
Just put the water in the Rice cooker then press the button to
change it from "warm" to "Cook" or whatever the settings are
on your Rice Cooker. Put the lid on and wait for it to come to
a boil....mine takes a little while....then ad the Pasta and put the
lid on....DON'T Walk Away
...when it returns to a boil; it will
boil over if you leave the lid on.
When it starts to boil, remove the lid and finish cooking the
Pasta with the lid off. When the Pasta is almost done you can
drain it and add the Pasta to the sauce or the sauce to the Pasta
for it to finish.
I started using my Rice Cooker to cook Pasta a few years ago
because I had become disabled and it was hard to stand at the
stove and cook....but I can put the Rice Cooker on the counter
and lean on the counter for support when I need too while the
Rice or Pasta is cooking. So, yes; you can easily cook Pasta
in your Rice Cooker.
