How-to Freeze Fresh Pasta

If you want to freeze fresh homemade pasta let it partially air dry then curl the pasta into portion-ed sized bundles as pictured above. Place on a parchment covered cookie sheet and cover with plastic wrap. Place in the freezer for a few hours or until they are hardened. Remove the pasta bundles and place in freezer bags and then back in the freezer.

When you are ready to cook the frozen pasta, don’t defrost the noodles jut place the in salted water as per usual. Gently stir to encourage the bundles to unravel. The cooking time will need to be extended but only slightly. It will depend on your noodles but for me the cooking time approximately doubled from 90 seconds to 3 minutes.
