    Default quick ?: pasta left out all night

    I left plain cooked pasta (no sauce) out all night by accident. It was a whole box and would really feel bad throwing it out if it doesnt need to be. Is this still edible or should I toss?

    Toss, anything starchy and moist can breed bacteria. Is ~$2 worth of pasta worth the risk?

    Chuck it. I HATE it when food gets left out, but remember that pasta was probably 1$. Not worth it.
