This is because the water is hotter in New Orleans than in Denver.

ans2. The Q should have concerned the cookingtime, not the boiling time. Because of the higher altitude, the water will boil sooner at Denver than at New Orleans, but at a lower temperature.

Why does it take so long to boil pasta?

There are basically two reasons for boiling (simmering) homemade pasta sauce for an hour. The longer the sauce cooks, the thicker it will be. Also, simmering for longer periods of time will allow the flavors to "marry," creating a better tasting sauce. Many recipes specify simmering pasta sauces for even longer; two hours or more.

Why more time is required to boil pasta in denverand Colorado than in new Orleans and Louisiana?

The boiling point of any substance, including water, is dependent on two things, the temperature and the pressure. Water will boil if the temperature is high enough, or if the pressure is low enough. Colorado is at a higher altitude than Louisiana, so there is less air pressure in Colorado. The lower pressure in Colorado means that not as high of a temperature is required to bring water to a boil than in Louisiana. (New Orleans is in Louisiana, so they can be treated as the same place in this case). The result is that boiling point of water in Louisiana is about 212 degrees Fahrenheit, while it is about 202 degrees Fahrenheit in Colorado. Notice that the water in Colorado is boiling at a lower temperature. More time is require to cook it because the water that it is being cooked in is not as hot as the boiling water in Louisiana.
