Storing fresh pasta

Bought some fresh linguine from our local pasta shop this morning to have some friends over for dinner tonight. As always I bought enough for 4, day of.

But they’re not going to be able to make it so it’s just my partner and myself who will be eating it - two servings left over. The next time we’re home for dinner will be Tuesday. My partner makes a mean bolognese sauce and we have some in the freezer.

So how do I store fresh pasta for three days, if at all, and what should I put it in to store it? Thanks.

Be sure to drain it first.

Freeze it.

OP - cook your pasta and mix with sauce and enjoy! if there are 1 or 2 servings "LEFTOVER", put the "leftovers" in a "covered container" in the fridge and eat them within a few days.

I suppose this procedure is TERRIBLY complicated and new to you, and laden with anxiety producing choices, but it's really the best method.

You dumb twat.

Miss OP probably forgot to mention that the iceman didn't deliver a giant block of ice for her icebox this week, so she can't just pop the pasta in there to keep it fresh.

Many of us here on DL don't understand this odd concept of "leftover pasta."

Bradley Cooper, the 100th person and only person who believed in me, understands the concept.

Not a shock, eight replies, no answer! The DL we’ve all come to know and loathe.

Eat it or put it in the fridge or throw it out. Any more urgent questions OP?

This is why I'm fat. It would never occur to me to not eat it all.

Follow the advice at R4.

Lay it out on a tray and separate the strands completely. Let it dry. You can leave it out until Tuesday, but not any longer. I use a half-sheet pan and parchment paper.

R4 must be a troll because it is blocked.

Thanks r12.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
