The wooden spoon trick

It seems everywhere you turn on Pinterest, there are amazing helpful hints.
So glad someone THOUGHT of them...but has anyone actually tried it to see if it worked?

Making pasta tonight I decided to try the wooden spoon trick
(Don't act like you don't know what I am talking about!)

They say: If you place a wooden spoon over the pot of boiling pasta, the starch will not boil over.

The result: It works!

I kept boiling at a high heat, just to test it out and it never once even rose over the side of the pan.
Nice to know I don't need to dump oil into every pot of boiling pasta anymore!
