Leftover Pasta: How to Reheat Noodles

You could boil them, but if your leftover pasta noodles are already al dente, they won’t be after you “re-cook” them in boiling water. I have a trick for reheating noodles that keeps them nearly al dente:  gentle steaming.

Add about an inch of water to a medium sauce pan, place steamer basket into pot, throw in your leftover pasta and cover. Bring water to a boil and steam until noodles are just warm. I use this method when I am reheating any noodles, whether pasta or chinese noodles.

Tonight, I used the steam basket to warm linguine. It was leftover from the night-before-last when my son and I prepared Boeuf Bourguignon for dinner.

If you are interested in a burgundy beef that is mind-blowing, check out this recipe for  Easy Boeuf Bourguignon . Note that I now add thickly sliced carrots to the stew. Also, I only use Santa Ema Cabernet Sauvignon for the wine in this recipe. Its bold flavor adds a richness to the overall flavor of the sauce making it memorable.

Happy cooking!

Having grown up in small-town America, with a modest urban farm as our backyard, I developed a deep seated love and respect for agriculture and the rural landscape. My family grew vegetables, fruit, and kept many animals, including chickens. This lifestyle that my mother encouraged made me the foodie and gardener I am today.
