Every day dinner drama typically happens in every household because you cannot make everyone eat the same thing. Satisfying the taste buds is the biggest struggle of all, and when you are a foodie like me, there is no such thing as “ordinary food.” Going extra fancy and adding a restaurant-style touch takes every dish to the next level. Therefore, when I tried the delicious California Pizza Kitchen Asparagus Spinach Spaghettini Recipe last weekend and craved it again, I decided to make it home.
And my endeavor led me to perfect this almost close to the original California Pizza Kitchen Asparagus and Spinach Spaghettini Recipe.

Can you Store the Asparagus and Spinach Spaghettini?
Well, I do not know about you, but trust me, I love some extra pizza and spaghettini or pasta stored in my fridge that I can warm up and eat any time I want, without the hassle of cooking.
However, with added vegetables in pasta, I would recommend do not store it for long, as stale veggies can alter the look and taste of the spaghettini. Therefore, if you want to store the Asparagus and Spinach Spaghettini, put it in an airtight box and keep it in the fridge for no more than 3 days and 5-7 days in the freezer.
