Leftovers
We’ve found that freezing and reheating Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo tends to take something away from its original greatness. The sauce gets a bit gloppy, its a technical term. 😛
Chill!: Store in tupperware for up to three days.
Heat!: Reheat in the microwave on medium for three minutes (or until warm).
Freeze!: As mentioned above, pasta and freezing aren’t the best of friends. But that being said, we still freeze our leftovers individually and heat them up during the week for lunch. Store in the freezer for no longer than two weeks.
