Hello Lucy! Yes, You can safely do this. Just make sure all the ingredients (Meatball sauce etc) are chilled before pasta, and drain the pasta very al dente so it doesn't still firm too while waiting. You got’ one of the first recipes of the site, don't remember it anymore. Would I go again and take new pictures… Let me know and thanks! ADA
