Hard boil two eggs in a pot of water. Add some salt into the water to prevent the eggs from splitting. Make sure you boil your eggs for 10 minutes so they get cooked all the way through, then place them into a bowl of cold water for five minutes.

Step Two

While the eggs are boiling you can go ahead and add your penne pasta noodles into the water with your eggs to begin cooking them.
