Does cooked pasta go bad?
cape chef, It's good to accidently eat bad food once in a while, keeps your immune system working.
While I might not fully disagree with this statement, on a personal level, from a professional standpoint one should never gamble on the health of ones customers, from both an ethical standpoint as well as a monetary standpoint.
lol, searched this after eating some bowtie pasta that was in the fridge for like... 3-5 weeks? wrapped up and tossed with butter, smelled ok. I heated it up with some steamed veggies and jarred alfredo sauce. Was good!.... I'll let you know if this was a mistake D:
In my experience, if it doesnt "smell-funny" it's fine, regardless of age, (with one exception*)
and believe me, I possess a brutally unforgiving gastric system.
As to how long it can go, depends on things like the fridge itself, how often it's opened,
how often the PASTA container is opened, TLThat.
To me, regardless of how it smells, if it's starting to "go-grey", I toss it.
