After how many days ready pasta can spoil in the refrigerator
If you like Italian dishes, then you definitely prepare delicious pasta at home quite often. But there is one problem with spaghetti – the dosage of this product can often be unpredictable. Therefore, many people cook more pasta than they can eat at one time.
Leftovers are often placed in an airtight container and then stored in the refrigerator to be retrieved and reheated the next day. In fact, if we talk about how long pasta is stored in the refrigerator, it is worth noting that it all depends on the method of its preparation. For example, fresh homemade pasta can be stored for 4-5 days, and a dish ordered in a cafe cannot be stored for more than 2 days.
How to understand whether pasta can still be eaten
Much depends on the type of product. Lasagna can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. But gluten-free pasta or lentil spaghetti can stay in the refrigerator for 4 days after cooking. That is, cold pasta can be stored in the refrigerator for several days, but it can already spoil in a week.
Therefore, before eating a dish, you need to check whether it is suitable for consumption. Just smell the finished pasta, if it has a strange, repulsive smell, it is better to throw the product away. The fact that the spaghetti has gone bad is also indicated by a dark color and the fact that it has become sticky to the touch.
