I’m so excited that squash is back at ALDI. Unfortunately, there were no butternut squash in stock at our local South Florida store, but we picked up a spaghetti squash instead. At $1.89 for a spaghetti squash (not per lb), it sure is a great deal, and I cannot wait for finding butternut squash at my store again.

  1. We had spaghetti squash for dinner tonight. We love all kinds of squash at our house, too. We pay A LOT more than that for it here, too, but we don’t have Aldi here.

    • Carla, this is my first time cooking spaghetti squash, so if you have a good recipe…

      • I use it in place of pasta. My husband is trying to get back down to the weight he was when we got married, so eats pretty low carb most days. Spaghetti squash is one of his favorites, and Elliott actually really likes it, too.

        This week I cooked it in the crock pot, and cooked a beef stoganoff in one of the other crock pots for one of our soccer days, since I always try to do something in the crock pot on those days anyway. I’ve also baked it with success. Really it’s pretty versatile, and super easy to prepare. I usually only season it with salt and pepper. We use it in whatever pasta dish we feel like having. Elliott loves it with a typical red sauce, or a cheese sauce as well. It doesn’t really taste like pasta, but the flavor does work well with most sauces that you would use on pasta anyway.

        Even though he will eat the other kinds of squash in stuff, spaghetti squash is the only one that Elliott will ask for by name. Carl and I both like pretty much every kind of squash we’ve ever tried. 🙂
