Thaw at least overnight in the fridge. Re-heat in a well-preheated 325 oven keep covered. Consider having some tomato juice or puree hand- it tends to have absorbed the juices, heading toward mushy pasta with dryness.

I would allow about an hour to reheat. About 1/2 way through, look under the foil and poke/press with a spoon. If it seems really dry,not juicy. pour on some tomato juice, all over, then re-cover and put back in to heat further.
