Tips

  • How long does spaghetti sauce last once opened? The precise answer depends to a large extent on storage conditions - to maximize the shelf life of opened spaghetti sauce, keep refrigerated and keep tightly covered at all times.
  • How long does opened spaghetti sauce last in the refrigerator? Spaghetti sauce that has been continuously refrigerated will generally keep for about 7 to 10 days.
  • For best quality, do not store spaghetti sauce in opened metal can - refrigerate in covered glass or plastic container after opening.
  • To further extend the shelf life of opened spaghetti sauce, freeze in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.
  • How long does spaghetti sauce last in the freezer? Properly stored, it will maintain best quality for about 6 months, but will remain safe beyond that time.
  • The freezer time shown is for best quality only — spaghetti sauce that has been kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
  • How long does spaghetti sauce last at room temperature? If kept at temperatures above 40 °F, spaghetti sauce will rapidly develop signs of spoilage; spaghetti sauce should be discarded if left for more than 4 hours at room temperature.
  • How can you tell if spaghetti sauce has gone bad? If spaghetti sauce develops an off odor, flavor or appearance, or if mold appears, it should be discarded.
