10 Pasta Sauces to Freeze for Easy Weeknight Meals

What a novel concept, especially if you are a busy person – preparing pasta sauces and freezing them for later use. It’s practical and the recipes provided sounds delicious. Being able to have this prepped and saved for 3 months is a great time-saving tip for a healthy and fulfilling dinner. You can try this out and experiment with both tomato and cream based sauces if pasta is one of your favorite meals!

Key Takeaways:

  • It’s important to remember that most cream-based pasta sauces are poor candidates for freezing, although sauces that incorporate a small amount of cheese are generally okay.
  • If your sauce requires a small amount of cream, freeze it without that specific ingredient and then simply add it in during the reheating process.
  • Reheat your sauce directly from the freezer by placing it in a saucepan and then heating it over low heat.

“We recommend using freezer-safe glass containers, or double layers of quart or gallon-sized freezer bags to store these sauces.”
