I’m the worst at overestimating how much spaghetti to make. We’ve been eating this stuff for like three days now, and I still have leftover spaghetti! Not wanting to toss it (or eat it for another day!), I slipped it into a ziploc bag today and stuck it in the freezer.
Freezing leftover spaghetti is a great way to save your extras for a future ready-made meal. Just be sure to let it cool before placing in a freezer bag for storage. It’s best to squeeze out as much air from the bag as possible to help prevent freezer burn. Be sure to label your bag with the date, and try to use your leftover spaghetti within six months or so, for best quality.
When you’re ready to eat it, let it thaw in the fridge overnight. We don’t have a microwave, so when it’s time to reheat mine I either dump it into a casserole dish and bake ’til heated through in the oven, or I put it in a saucepan over med. heat, and add a little water to the bottom of the pan to prevent scorching. Then stir until heated through.
What’s your favorite thing to do with leftover spaghetti?
