I hate leaving leftover pasta especially if it's tomato or cream base that requires a microwave to warm up the next day. When I know my morning will be rushed I love cooking cold pasta for dinner and save a portion for lunch the next day. it's quick and simple. Plus, the texture and taste only gets better once you refrigerate it. The best part - you don't need a microwave to heat it up. This is the beauty of cold pasta.
