I am having a big party and I want to cook as much as I can ahead of time. I am very new to all of this and I want to know if I can freeze gluten free pasta. I want to make baked ziti and freeze it but I don't want to ruin it!

I haven't had any luck freezing gluten-free pasta. Maybe others have had better luck?

Cause of the lack of preservatives I had no look reheating them to. I only use corn pastas cause the rice pasta i dont like.

I have frozen and reheated Tinkyada Shells and Macaroni without a problem. I have done this with Mac and Cheese, Spaghetti Sauce and only the pasta.

I would think the easiest would be to make all of the fillings and sauces and have everything prepared. Then the morning of the party cook the pasta and throw everything together.

Hope your party goes easily

Works for me every time. I use Tinkyada pasta, and freeze the extra noodles tossed with a little olive oil, in a ziploc bag. I just toss them into boiling water right from the freezer, and take them out almost immediately - leaving them in just long enough to thaw and reheat. You can undercook them just a bit if you're worried about them getting mushy. It works great for me, and saves a lot of time during the week!

Tinkyada freezes for me EVERY Time with not mushy results. Works great in all my old pasta recipes without any issue at all - again, even freezing.

IF freezing, under cook JUST SLIGHLY...like two minutes.

My last recipe was their "ziti" shape, and it was frozen for 2 months, just had it for dinner last week and it was yum yum yum!

I freeze my lasagna all the time and it comes out great. I use Deboles Lasagna Noodles (no bake).

I have also frozen Tinkyada with Mac & Cheese and it comes out great. :)
