Question Freezing Question

There are just the 2 of us and would like to freeze some so I do freeze things like Homemade veg. soup and Chili for eating at a later date. I made some chicken and noodles (I used reams noodles) and was wondering if anyone has ever frozen this and if so did it thaw out okay.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

You can freeze it. It'll be fine.

Your noodles will not be like they were before they were frozen and reheated. They turn out somewhat softer but it can be done.

I usually portion out the amount I will be using and cook some noodles in that. Then, I freeze the rest without the noodles and add them when I reheat the soup.

Welcome to DC! Like Lyndalou, I only add pasta to the portion I'm eating. When using the soup from the freezer, I like orzo for the pasta because by the time the soup is heated (from thawed frozen soup), the orzo is done.

If you plan ahead a bit, you can leave out the noodles in the portion to be frozen (saves freezer space too) then add them when you thaw and use.

I just recently froze a bunch of turkey soup from thanksgiving that had pasta egg noodles in it and it does come out very mushy after defrost. Next time I would prob make the noodles extra al dente before freezing

I prefer to keep extra cooked buttered egg noodles on hand in the freezer. I'm not a fan of mushy noodles, and they freeze well.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
