How do you handle home made pasta?

I've made home made pasta twice now, and the results have been amazing. Really delicious, tender pasta. BUT, I'm having trouble figuring out how to handle the leftover pasta. I've been hanging the fettucini on a clothes drying rack covered with a tea towel, but if I leave it overnight it becomes so brittle that it shatters when I try to take it off the rack. I can't figure out the best way to store it, or to handle it once cut. Should I swirl it into nests and store airtight? Freeze immediately? I'm thrilled with the fresh product, but then what? I really don't want to open a container full of pasta crumbs.
