Did you make too much pasta? Do not let it go to waste. This is the best way to store leftover pasta without having it dry out and clump! Sometimes I make extra pasta just to make a second weeknight pasta dinner even easier. Then I just have to make a simple pasta sauce and throw in the leftover pasta to warm it through. It makes dinnertime a breeze!! Here's how....
How to store leftover pasta...
Lightly toss the warm, leftover pasta with oil. This will keep the pasta from clumping together.
Place the warm pasta directly into a large Ziploc bag and seal. The pasta must be warm so the moisture will help to keep the pasta from drying out.
Store in your refrigerator until you are ready to use.
It is as easy as that! And it works perfectly everytime!
Cook lots of pasta once and get two different meals out of it! Trust me - this storage tip is a game changer! Try it and make dinnertime a breeze!
