Yes, but really, very hot water, what we call a "high rolling boil". I don't know what your kitchen facilities are; I was in Hong Kong and for many people it was just a gas ring. You really want very hot, boiling water, then it only takes a minute or two. That is why it isn't necessarily a savings on time, energy or the ecology to save pasta.

We do this all the time, freeze left over spaghetti. Just take it out of the freezer and let it thaw out. You can even give a quick rinse under hot tap water just to warm it. We use this 2 ways: Fry it in a little oil and add your marinara sauce or make lo mein various ways adding stir fry sauce and veggies, meat etc.

I agree with taurus430. I freeze fully cooked spaghetti. Then I thaw it when I am ready to use it and just warm it. I have never had a problem with the spaghetti breaking up. This works well for me when I come home very late at night and want a quick meal.

Any time I wonder if something can be frozen, I stop and ask, "Can I find this in the frozen section of the supermarket?"

Simple question, simple answer.
