Spaghetti bake is a great freezer food. I wrap portion sized slices in freezer bag. Just make sure your Classic Spaghetti Pie is completely cool before you start packing it.

 

How long does spaghetti pie lasts in the fridge ?

To make things safe, store leftover spaghetti pie up to four days in the fridge.

 

How to reheat Classic Spaghetti Pie or any pasta bake ?

You can  reheat it straight from the freezer. You just remove plastic covering or foil. Bake at approx. 375 F until thawed in the center. Once you check it is soft ( by inserting toothpick or fork in the middle ) just continue baking until golden brown on the top.
