How Long Can You Store Spaghetti Squash in the Refrigerator?

By Kristen May

Refrigerate cooked spaghetti squash or other types of winter squash in an airtight container or covered in plastic wrap for up to 3 to 5 days. The squash should be refrigerated within 2 hours of cooking to prevent bacteria growth and spoilage.


Cooked Spaghetti Squash.

Raw Spaghetti Squash.

Sliced or chopped raw spaghetti squash will keep in the refrigerator for about 2 to 4 days. Whole raw spaghetti squash can be stored in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 weeks, but it keeps longer and maintains a better texture and flavor if stored in a pantry.

Bottom Line

Eat cooked spaghetti squash within 3 to 5 days of putting it in the refrigerator. Although whole raw spaghetti squash can be stored for 1 to 2 weeks in the refrigerator, it keeps for 1 to 2 months in the pantry or another cool, dry location.
