Made too much today - can Iput it in the fridge and reheat tomorrow? There is no sauce on it or anything. IF so how do I reheat - boil in water again?

I wouldn't bother, would suspect it would turn out rather dry/rubbery (but then I haven't done it). Why not turn it into pasta salad instead?

yes, you would plunge it into boiling water for 2 minutes

or you could make it into a pasta bake...pour sauce over, sprinkle with cheese etc..shove in oven

It's OK if you microwave it. Don't re-do it in water though- it'll turn into playdoh.

Why not just do a cold pasta salad with it tommorow?

Some suggestions:

tinned tuna, chopped apple, tinned sweetcorn, chopped tomatoe and chopped pineapple, all mixed together with a low fat mayonaisse (and maybe a dash of Tabasco sauce)or similar

You could try loads of other combinations of food - whatever suitable items you have in the house.

thought of cold pasta makes me marmite - you either love it or hate it!

could try a frittata?
otherwise i would chuck it. Even poncey pasta is only just over £1 a packet so leftovers are unlikely to be much more than 10ps worth of pasta
