You can make a large batch of pasta dough at once and save it for future meals, sparing you the trouble of actually making the dough each time you want homemade pasta. You can freeze pasta dough for up to three months, so don’t hesitate to make as much dough as you can use within that time. Cut of the pasta dough in smaller balls, cover with flour and freeze
Things You’ll Need
Resealable plastic freezer bags
1Divide the pasta dough into portions that you can use in a single meal. This saves you from needing to thaw several meals’ worth of dough when you only want to make one meal, leaving you with lots of thawed dough and no way to use it.2Roll each of these portions of dough into a ball and then coat each ball generously with the same kind of flour that you used to make the dough. Place each ball into its own resealable plastic freezer bag and then seal all of the bags.Place the bags into the freezer. You can keep the dough frozen for up to three months without a significant decline in quality.4Remove a bag of dough from the freezer the night before you wish to use it. Place it into the refrigerator to allow it to thaw overnight. Then use as desired.
