If there’s a better lunch than last night’s leftovers, then I’d like to hear it.

(Okay, there are plenty of amazing lunches out there, but just humour me, will you?)

But the worst thing about leftovers is having to reheat them, which by 1pm when your belly is at full rumble stage, we just simply don’t have the patience for.

How many times have you microwaved your food and checked it every minute only to find that it’s still freezing cold in the middle? Well, thanks to this super-simple food hack, we now know how to reheat food in the microwave in the quickest way possible.

TikTok user @howdoesshe recently shared a video of her microwaving pasta leftovers in record time. Instead of just piling it in a Tupperware or on a plate, @howshedoes explains that if you spread the food out in a ring shape with a hole in the middle, your food will be evenly heated through in no time.

This works so well as the middle of the plate is where the the radio frequency microwaves, which warm the food, have the most difficulty reaching. Smart, right?

Of course, no matter how you choose to use your microwave, make sure your food is piping hot before you eat it.
