I'm new to making homemade pasta. I have a tendency to make way more of anything than will actually be consumed within a few days so I'm looking for advice ahead of time on how to preserve my excess pasta. I've read the posts about freezing but freezing can lessen the quality of food. I read an article on drying cooked pasta in a dehydrator for 2-4 hours at 135oF. Is this a good idea? If dried properly, how long will the pasta keep?
