Food Storage - Pasta

Put paper boxes of grains — for example, crackers, pasta, cereals, and rice — in airtight containers or large zipper bags. Not only will the products stay fresher, but it will also prevent insects from finding their way in your favorite pasta. The starch that is used to hold together corrugated boxes can be a breeding ground for insects both in warehouses and in supermarkets. And when these bugs get hungry they can find their way into packages that you can inadvertently bring home.

•Pastas will last about a year unopened or stored in an airtight container.

•Egg Noodles will only last about one to two months after they're opened.
