It is possible to freeze cooked noodles for up to 2 weeks. When freezing cooked noodles, they should be drained thoroughly and placed in an airtight container.

Adding a touch of olive oil to the noodles can prevent them from sticking and keep them soft and flavorful when they’re thawed. When the noodles are ready for use, users should let them defrost by running warm water onto them in a colander. They can also be placed frozen in boiling water, but the cooking time may increase by 1 or 2 minutes. Cooked pasta can also be kept in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
