Spaghetti squash can be used as a healthy substitute for pasta in many of your favorite dishes. It has the same texture as most of the noodles you’re used to, but has only 31 calories and 17 milligrams of sodium per cup.

There are many ways to cook spaghetti squash, but using a slow cooker is probably the best option for truckers. It only takes about 2 1/2 hours in a slow cooker before it’s ready. Once it’s soft, cut it in half and scoop out the noodle-like flesh. Then you can pair it with your favorite pasta dish.
