Best Ways To Store And Use Pasta

Best Storage

The cupboard is the best place to store uncooked dry pasta.

Store dry pasta in its original packaging, sealed with a clip, or in an airtight container in a cool dry place. Fresh pasta should be stored in the fridge in an airtight container or sealed bag. Always follow the guidance on the packaging.

Ensure your fridge is set between 0 and 4°C.

Can I Freeze It?


Cooked too much pasta? Rinse it in cold water and freeze in meal-sized portions. These can be reheated in a microwave or in boiling water when needed.

Use It Up

Use leftover pasta to make a chicken noodle soup, toss spaghetti into an Asian noodle stir-fry, or make up a cold pasta salad.

Did You Know?

Zucchini can step in as a noodle if your pantry is bare. Use your spiralizer or veggie peeler to use up your zucchini that might be starting to go soft. Zoodles make a great gluten-free meal!

Dry pasta can keep up to two years. Old pasta has a gummy flavour when cooked and may show signs of discoloration.
