There are many ways to extend the shelf life of food. One easy way is to freeze it. It’s super simple and won’t take up space in your freezer! And if you’re cooking pasta or noodles, don’t throw them out after they’ve cooled off – just put them in a bag and save ’em for later! Don’t forget to date them so you can keep track of how long you’ve had them in there!
Here are some tips on how to freeze Noodles and Pasta:
1) Take your unopened package of cooked noodles or pasta that you want to save for another day, seal it tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil, then store it in an airtight container. The key here is letting it cool down first before freezing so that condensation doesn’t form on the inside of the container which will make everything soggy when you thaw it out later.
2) Freeze your cooked noodles or pasta in small portions so you can defrost only what you need at a time, this prevents them from sticking together and makes them easier to separate when thawed.
3) Label the containers with the date they were frozen and note whether they are “raw” noodles or “cooked” pasta, some frozen noodles or pasta can go straight from freezer to pot without cooking first.
4) If you are freezing cooked noodles or pasta, make sure they are completely thawed before you reheat them or they will likely break apart into mush when stirred.
5) Freezing cooked noodles or pasta does not affect their quality or texture, but it often has a noticeable effect on the flavor.
