When you are running
around the house, it can be hard to cook pasta noodles since
you have to keep an eye on them, stir them, make sure they
aren't boiling over or burning on the bottom. But sometimes
the thought of a quick meal of spaghetti noodles and canned
spaghetti sauce - or frozen homemade sauce - is just so appealing.
But what you may not have realized is that you can freeze
cooked pasta noodles and defrost and reheat later.
Cook your noodles
according to the instructions. Drain and allow to air dry
(noodles can be "wet" but not with water droplets
on them). Then pop into the freezer in appropriate serving-sized
containers or ziploc bags. You might want to do some of them
in family-sized portions while freezing some in single serving
In the morning,
simply pop the container into the refridgerator to thaw. Then
reheat in the microwave to serve with your favorite sauce.
