Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti is hard. All that cooking, draining, not burning… it’s too complicated for a poor college student. Not to mention all the carbs - living on ramen does little to improve one’s health. Luckily, there’s a healthier alternative: spaghetti squash! 

Easily the most delicious vegetable known to mankind, spaghetti squash allows you to enjoy the gourmet flavor of italian pasta along with the health benefits of a good salad. Spaghetti squash is actually one of the healthiest types of squash, with only 42 calories per cup. It’s also incredibly easy to prepare. It’s a bit expensive, but requires few ingredients, takes little time to make, and can feed one person for days.


1 Spaghetti squash: about $4

Marinara sauce: $2.02

Broccoli: $1.44

Vegetable oil: $2.00

Total: $9.46

I forked out the insides of the spaghetti squash, and they came out stringy and wet. I rinsed the squash and set it aside in a bowl.

I then turned on the stove and, in a pan, poured out a tablespoon of vegetable oil, half the jar of marinara, and about ¼ of a head of broccoli, which I had broken into small florets. I stirred the ingredients for 2-3 minutes.

Then, I poured the spaghetti squash into the pan and mixed everything up, and my meal was ready!

Score: 10/10

This took me just 10 minutes to make, but it didn’t taste like I had just thrown it together. This recipe is also super easy - as long as you know how to use a fork and break apart broccoli, you have the skill-set to make a mean spaghetti squash. Plus, this is a great source of fiber; all the main ingredients are vegetables or vegetable-based! While any college student is averse to vegetables, spaghetti squash is a healthy, yet delicious, way to get the nutrients you need to stay healthy and energized in an environment which often induces the opposite condition.

Recipe of the Day: Ina Garten’s Crunchy Noodle Salad
Each strand of Ina’s cold spaghetti-based salad clings with a tangy, nutty sauce of rice vinegar, soy sauce, honey, ginger and peanut butter. Toss it with sugar snap peas, peppers and scallions for color and crunch.
