    I have some ricotta and spinach tortellini pasta in the fridge that is nearly a month old (21st of april is the date on the front.) It doesnt specify whether it is use by or best before, but it is from Lidl...

    Do you think it will be safe to eat? I have nothing else in the fridge to eat

    Give it a sniff, that will probably put you off.

    It is dried though, not fresh and it has been in the fridge?

    Let me guess, you wouldn't get on the peasant wagon bus?

    It's cheese. Cheese contains in it cultivated bacteria. It's out of date.
    Just no.

    I've never been on a bus. I despise public transport.

    A month is quite a long period of time when dealing with food. It would be a much more pausible idea to not consume it - eat something else!

    Whether it was use by or best before it's nearly a month past and I definitely wouldn't risk it.

    i thought dried stuff was preserved?

    also, whilst im at it, and yes i do have a lot of out of date stuff hanging about, - i noticed iv had a bottle of red wine on my shelf in my room that was opened 1-2 months ago but has since been sealed (cap top). Can I drink that?

    I wouldn't risk it with cheese, not when it's a month over anyway. Most of the time though if it doesn't look / smell off then I'm eating it regardless of the date on the side.

    a) It depends on the dried stuff.
    b) Not indefinitely.
    c) It has a date on it.

    And the wine, just smell it.

    Well you could've just heated the tomatoes up and split them up with a wooden spoon to make tomato soup at least.
