That was why I cooked the noodles slightly tonight - I was using pesto, so it wasn't a hot sauce to "cook" them in.

Ouis, I'm gonna try that next time. They were in the fridge for about 2 hours before I used them tonight, but they were definitely too soft still.

I stuck that little wad of dough that was left into the freezer in a sandwich baggie - gonna use it next time I make pasta, defrosted first of course!

Others have said that they roll them out into a thin sheet then freeze, and when there are enough, will make lasagna with them.
