2 Ingredient Spaghetti Squash Recipe

Spaghetti squash is a hearty vegetable that's prolific in summer and often available year-round. Admittedly, nothing can replace pasta but if you're looking for a lighter, plant-based dish that's both flavorful and easy to cook in a Stasher bag, this recipe is for you! 

Stasher Steamed Spaghetti Squash with Marinara 


  • 1 small spaghetti squash
  • Your favorite marinara (store bought or homemade)


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Halve your spaghetti squash length-wise then remove seeds and fibers with a spoon. Season as desired then place half of the squash into a Half Gallon Stasher bag. Seal the bag partially, with a crack left open for steam to escape. Place carefully in your pot and cover with a lid. Let the squash steam until tender (about 45 minutes).

When cooked, carefully remove the Stasher bag with tongs and let the squash cool for a couple of minutes.

Remove squash from bag and scrape the inside with a fork to make "spaghetti." Add to a bowl, cover with heated marinara, and enjoy!

🧑‍🍳 Tip: Before cutting your spaghetti squash, poke some holes through the skin, then microwave about 3 minutes to soften. This makes it easier to cut.
