How to Store Your Fresh Pasta Properly

how to store pasta properlyYou’ve been planning a special, authentic Italian meal at home for a while. You ordered your freshly made pasta from Vero and you’re all ready to go, except for one thing: your dinner plans are scheduled a few days in advance. Or perhaps your plans got unexpectedly derailed and you need to reschedule. Whatever curveballs life may throw at you, there’s one thing you don’t have to worry about – your pasta. Here’s how you can store it properly until you need it:

Your Meal is Within a Few Days

Let’s say your friends and family are coming over for dinner on the weekend. If that’s the case, simply store your fresh pasta in the refrigerator! It will last up to 5 days in the cooler temperature. To keep it from drying out and cracking, wrap the pasta or place it in an airtight container before storing in the fridge.

Dinner is a Few Weeks Away

Whether your plans got pushed back or you’re scheduling in advance, your pasta will stay fresh for your upcoming Italian meal. You can store your noodles in the freezer for up to a month. Our fresh pasta is tossed in flour before we send it to your doorstep, which prevents them from sticking together in the freezer. All you need to do is package the frozen noodles in individual servings in a few freezer bags, mark the “use-by” date on the bag, and place them in the freezer. Easy!

Spring is that beautiful time of year to dine (preferably al fresco) on delicious food with one another. Make plans to spend time with your loved ones over delectable, authentic Italian cuisine from Vero Meal Kits. Order your favorite fresh pasta today!
