I also don't put it in the fridge until I cook it, afterwards I do though. I have about 1 cup for each meal (it makes 3 for me), and I make a homemade spaghetti sauce, usually with either ground beef or ground chicken (whichever is on sale, heh). My mom used to make it with a cheese sauce, very yummy, but not so good with the calories!
Not sure if that helped either..
