Noodle baskets can be stored in the refrigerator if securely wrapped for up to 3 days or frozen up to 3 weeks. To reheat, remove plastic wrap, place on cookie sheet and bake in preheated 325 degree F. oven for about 8 minutes. Please note that times are estimates. I haven't tried this but it looked interesting.
