Can pasta be frozen once it is cooked?

Yes. Be sure that cooked, plain pasta is dry before freezing--you don't want ice crystals to form on it. To avoid freezer burn, place the pasta in an oxygen-free plastic freezer bag or a plastic container. The more you fill the bag or container with pasta, the less room there is for oxygen (which will cause faster deterioration). Freeze lasagna, baked ziti, and other prepared pasta dishes in glass or plastic baking dishes, and cover them with aluminum foil and plastic wrap.
Pasta-based dishes should be consumed within 30 days of freezing.
