Tip: Freezing Boiled Pasta

Do you ever have leftover cooked pasta and you don’t want to throw it away? Here is a little tip: you can store cooked pasta in the freezer!

Before putting the container full of leftovers in the freezer, pour a bit of olive oil on the pasta, so that later you can unfreeze it more easily.

When you want to eat it, remember to take it out a few hours before and let it defrost. Then, put it in a saucepan and heat it in a double boiler over simmering water.
You can even try cooking your pasta al dente because when you reheat it, the pasta cooks to a slightly softer texture instead of turning out slightly mushy. Firmer is better, although just make sure it's still edible before freezing. The microwave process will soften it, but not cook it through. There you are... another meal solved!

You can even freeze homemade sauce in small ice cube shapes to go along with your frozen pasta. It will melt quickly and not explode all over your microwave either. Double score!
