  1. How long can you keep spaghetti squash in the fridge? Can this be stored for a few days for meal prep? How many days? Thank you kindly!

      This prep method reduces the excess moisture, but as long as you don’t combine the sauce with the noodle it should hold up for a few days. Fresh is always best!
