Freezing fresh pasta for future raviolis

Our bumper crop of veggies is coming on and our neighbor's chickens are producing eggs at an amazing rate. I don't have time right now to complete assembly on raviolis, but could make large batches of frozen pasta and filling. What is the best way to store the pasta? [more inside]

The logistics of parmesan on bolognaise.

I have made a lovely bolognaise. I think it would be even lovelier with parmesan. If I buy some parmesan I won't use up the whole wedge. Is there anything interesting I could use the leftover parmesan for? Or alternatively, something other than parmesan that is dynamite on a bolognaise sauce. [more inside]

What can I do with overcooked pasta?

Every once in a while, I'll absent-mindedly leave pasta to cook just past the point where it's inedible. I hate throwing away food. Can I repurpose the overcooked pasta somehow? I've tried sautéing the mushy noodles in oil following a suggestion from somewhere, but it doesn't salvage it. I was thinking along the lines of throwing the pasta into the food processor and making a dough, or drying it out in the fridge and grinding it down, but I don't know if that's a good idea.

Can I eat this? (Power outage edition)

I made baked orzo with veggies and cheese yesterday morning, thinking I had lunches covered for the next couple of days. I covered it in foil, and put it in the fridge, once the glass casserole dish had cooled a bit. It had been in there for about 2-3 hours when the power went out. The power was out for about 10-11 hours, and no one was home to open the fridge for most of that time. Please tell me it's okay to eat?
