Last Sunday, when I was making Spinach Stuffed Pasta Shells, some of the cooked shells had broken or split while cooking and couldn’t be used for the dish. Plus I ran out of filling before I ran out of shells, so I had some whole ones left, as well.
Rather than throw out that pasta, I sliced it up into strips.
Then I put those into a freezer bag and put them in the freezer to be used the next time I make soup.
I also do this with lasagna or manicotti shells that break while cooking.
