Ever had a fight over the choice of pasta to cook for a meal? Well, you aren't alone. If your family is craving pasta but can't decide on which shape of pasta to cook, it can get really tough. But an Instagram user found a solution to this problem. US-based realtor Jessica Nakamura, who goes by the handle @jess.nak.realtor, shared a video on the social media platform and captioned it, "When your family can't agree on what pasta shape to eat… You get creative." The post contained the hashtags "mom hacks" and "life hack". The viral video shows her taking a handful of pasta in a sieve and boiling them in water. This way she'll be able to cook small quantities of two different kinds of pasta in the same vessel. Take a look at the viral pasta hack here:

The hack has gone viral and received over 9.7 million views and 259k likes. But, even this pasta cooking hack came with its own limitations. In a later video, Jessica tried cooking small-sized pasta and linguine in the same vessel but her hack failed even though the video went viral yet again. The video shows how the long strands of pasta also entered the sieve and mixed with the other kind of pasta. The video was titled, "When your viral hack fails." The caption read, "So last week I posted about my pasta cooking hack and it blew up. Well, I tried making linguine this week and… failed lol." It raked in over 6.7 million views. Here is the video:
