Freezing Alfredo Sauce

Can you freeze Alfredo sauce? Can you freeze cooked pasta (without sauce), and if so, how would you go about defrosting it? Thanks

No expert here, but alfredo made from milk & cheese, flour, etc., will probably be fine to freeze.

Pasta seems be tricky to me. Never really tried it except already-made & mixed up spaghetti.

It may come out as mush when defrosted!

Maybe frozen aldente' then boiled for a few minutes to defrost & complete the cooking process.

You can freeze both Alfredo sauce and cooked pasta but the pasta will be a little mushy when thawed. Thaw pasta in the refrigerator overnight or cook in the micro just as you would a frozen dinner. Milk based sauces tend to pop and splatter when heated in the micro, thaw overnignt in the fridge then heat on the stovetop.

Freezing pasta works very well if you haven't over cooked it. Just boil your water and drop it in. It's done instantly. I've never had good luck with Alfredo sauce. It never has the right consistency after being frozen.

Very helpful. Thanks very much. I made lots for Father's Day, and want to save the leftover. I'll give this a try.
