When I prepare homemade egg pasta (tagliatelle, fettuccine, spaghetti, etc), which is the better way to store it?

I used to keep it in a cotton cloth, but sometimes it becomes moldy.

I always freeze my leftover fresh pasta. I lay it flat on a cookie sheet, place it in the freezer for a couple of hours, and then when it is frozen I transfer it into a Tupperware container. I always use a rigid container instead of freezer bag as the bag does not protect against breakage when the pasta is moved around in the freezer.

    Agreed. Excellent method. And if you want to keep it fresh for a few days, I would recommend letting it dry thoroughly. Dec 15, 2010 at 16:56
