How would one go about doing this? Is it safe to freeze?
Pasta freezes well, if you do it right. In fact, i know of a very famous italian restaurant in NY that freeZes their pasta and they make fresh everyday. They cycle through new pasta every three days and they serve ALOT of pasta. The chef dared me to tell the difference. And he's right. 99.9% of people can't tell.
To freeze, bundle into small amounts (eg wrap around or hand), enough for single servings. Put on a tray, with a little semolina flour or cornmeal dusted underneath ( to prevent sticking). Keep each bunch seperate, they cant touch. Put into frezzer. Once frozen ( few hours), transfer to a ziplock freezer bag. It will keep for several months, but I'd eat it within one month.
To use dump straight into boiling water. Make sure you have a big pot of water at a full boil ( because the frozen pasta will drop the temp more than unfrozen). Stir immediately.
This works very well....
Yes, it is safe to freeze. You want to freeze in a quantity you can eat or in a way you can get it to a quantity you can eat in a single portion. I often dry mine then freeze.
