Home made pasta: how to preserve it

Hi all,
I will appreciate any information regarding preserving of home made pasta (fettuchini / spaghetti).

I love making home made pasta, and have often been asked by friends to make extra for them to take home. How do I make sure it doesn't go bad?

Hi sashmit,

But, welcome to the site and check back for an answer.

When I was making home made pasta ( I broke 2 pasta machines already so gave up) :oops:
Anyways, The recipe made more then we could eat at one time so I would freeze the pasta in a ziplock freezer bag. When it came time to use it, I would take it out of the freezer and put it right into the boiling water, don't thaw it first.

This worked best for me.

And, of course, there is drying the pasta.

thanks for the replies.
Bubba: how long do you think dried egg pasta will keep and do I just leave it to dry or there is a special way?
