Question Is it still good? - September 11th 2015, 08:20 PM

So... I brought pasta with alfredo sauce to school today and completely forgot about it. I'm now hungry, so I want to eat it, but I'm not sure if it's good. It's been in a thermos for about 8 hours in an air conditioned room and is still hot and smells okay.

If it smells fine, it's probably fine. While milk products shouldn't be out very long before consuming, salt in pasta sauce keeps things good pretty long, and if the dish was only a day old or show, it should be fine to eat.

I realize you made this post a few days ago and probably already have your answer, I'm assuming. But just to throw my opinion out there, I'd say its fine. Like I would seriously eat it. At my mom's house they actually leave left overs out on the counter for hours, sometimes even put it in the fridge the next day, but all the food turns out perfectly okay.

Since you've either eaten or not eaten the food by now I'm going to go ahead and close this thread. For future reference though, I'd say it would be fine in a thermos as between the salt in the food and the thermos it kept it fresh.

Happy noms!
