Can you freeze pasta dough?
YES!!! You can freeze the entire dough ball, or the shaped pasta.
Freezing the entire dough ball:
Pull the dough over itself and tuck underneath by pinching together, then dust lightly with flour. Wrap in plastic wrap, then store in freezer in a zip lock bag for up to 6 months.
OR: Form pasta shapes and freeze nests or scattered shapes individually on a parchment lined baking tray.
Once frozen, toss into zip lock freezer bags and store for up to 6 months, for fresh pasta anytime!
No need to thaw fresh pasta before cooking, it will cook virtually the same as room temperature fresh pasta (just a minute or two in boiling water; don't over cook!)
