Eggplant rotini

I made eggplant rotini and the servings are for 6 people. Is it possible to freeze the rotini without changing the taste of the eggplant.

    I would think so. Not that this is any gauge to good taste, but the supermarket refrigerator section is filled with various kinds of eggplant dishes.

      I have done it successfully many times.

      I suspect your dish is eggplant "rollatini" and, if so, it'll freeze just fine. Just make sure it's properly sealed (vacuum sealed is best) to avoid freezer burn and odor/flavor transfers.

        Yup - it'll freeze just fine if properly wrapped. While I've not frozen Rollatini, I freeze Eggplant Parmagian all the time & it defrosts & reheats in the microwave just fine. What I do is cut the leftovers into individual serving size portions & wrap tightly in ClingWrap, then put all of the portions into a labeled Ziploc freezer bag. When I need a portion or two, I just remove what I need & briefly run it under warm water to loosen the ClingWrap, then proceed to nuking.

          Today's rollatini is tomorrows "fight you for it" sandwich. Would never make the freezer in my house but...it freezes just fine.
