We take an in-depth look at the different ways you can store leftover pasta, how long it will last in the fridge and freezer, and how you should properly store these tasty dishes.
You can use two methods: the quick one or the slow one. The slow one involves first thawing the spaghetti inside the fridge for a couple of hours before reheating it in a saucepan.
Black, brown, or white spots will appear on the pasta, and you may even see mold. Then, it will also smell sour, rotten, and spoiled.
If you have leftover spaghetti, the best way to store any leftovers is inside a clean, odor and stain-free airtight container.
Frozen leftover spaghetti and pasta will last roughly between 1-2 months inside the freezer. But the sooner you eat it the better.
If you store leftover spaghetti properly, it can easily last between 3-5 days. This timeframe only applies to homemade spaghetti that has been made with fresh ingredients.
