The pasta can be reheated on a stove, in a microwave and in a conventional oven, here are some tips that will make the task easier, especially if our food is not accompanied by any kind of balance.

Reheats on the stove

If you plan to use the stove to reheat your food, you should consider the following:

First, if you have enough pasta left, I recommend that you reserve a cup of the cooking water with which you prepared the pasta.

Then in a skillet add melted butter or oil, place the pasta and stir constantly while the skillet is heating. If the pasta that you are heating in the pan, is accompanied by some sauce and you see it very dry, it is advisable to add more sauce.

On the other hand, if the pasta you saved does not have sauce, the ideal is to immerse it in boiling water for 30 seconds, remove from the heat and drain. Serve by adding a sauce or you can eat it with cheese and butter.

Non-microwave oven

Another alternative to reheat the pasta and that it is not too hot on the edges and very cold in the center, is to reheat it in the microwave. Place it in a large container and leave a space in the center, as if you were to form a donut in this way you will favor the heat spreading evenly.

And so that it doesn’t get too dry, cover the container where you put the pasta with a plastic, leave a small hole in one corner to allow the steam to escape. It is recommended to heat in small portions and not in large quantities to achieve a better reheat.

Conventional oven

If you are going to heat enough pasta, the ideal is to do it in the oven, since you will achieve an even heating. To do this you must do the following:

First you must preheat the oven to 180ºC or 350ºF, place the pasta in the oven on a suitable baking sheet. Cover the tray where you have the pasta with aluminum foil to retain the moisture and put it to bake

Add your cooking water or more sauce so it doesn’t dry out and stays moist. Leave it in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. After time, remove the pasta from the oven and check with a metal fork in the center of the pasta tray and wait for 10 to 15 seconds, check that the tip of the fork is hot otherwise put the tray back on the oven.
