Tips
  • The precise answer to the question “How long does spaghetti sauce last once opened?” depends to a large extent on storage conditions — keep opened spaghetti sauce refrigerated and tightly covered at all times.
  • 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 for safety purposes? The freezer time shown is for best quality only — foods 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.
