How to Freeze Your Leftover Spaghetti (and Other Cooked Pasta)

Freezing food is relatively simple. You can freeze just about any cooked pasta but how you cook the noodles can make a big difference when you’re ready to thaw.

You can definitely freeze spaghetti. Aim to cook your pasta al dente. If the noodles are too soft or mushy, they might not survive reheating. 

Let the pasta cool completely before placing into freezer-safe bags or containers. You can also place cooked pasta in a single layer on a baking sheet, freeze and then transfer to a reusable container.

In the freezer, cooked pasta will last up to three months. When you’re ready to defrost the pasta, transfer it to the fridge to thaw.

Then, dump the pasta into boiling water (or pop it in the microwave) to reheat. You can also add the pasta to a brothy soup
