How many times a week do you guys eat spaghetti?

I’m up to 4 times a week now.

3 of those times do not have hamburger meat and that makes me sad. How about you guys? Do you guys love spaghetti because I do a quarter of the times.

It’d be hard for me to come up with a weekly average, especially since when I get a pack of spaghetti I often go through it pretty quickly, but I don’t buy a pack every week, certainly.

I probably eat pasta four or five times a week on average, but mostly those are other varieties, especially because it’s a bit awkward to eat spaghetti out of a mason jar at work. :smiley: Elbow macaroni, shells, or ditali are my staples for lunch.

Maybe once every 6 weeks or so.

pasta 4-5 times a week?! and to think that the asian rice diet is sterotyped as monotonous.

i recently came up with a SUPER simple way to make butter chicken. milk (cream and yogurt if ya got it) into canned sauce plus a package of “handi” spice you can pick up for 89cents a box at any asian food market makes a pretty close approximation of tikki masala/butter chicken. of course you’ll have to make another trip to costco to get the bulk chicken breast/thighs but the entire thing takes about 20 minutes from start to finish.

chili spaghetti is another bachelor chow way of mixing it up. it’s “cincinnati style”.

spaghetti with olive oil is even easier than spaghetti and red sauce.

take the hamburger meat, the macaroni, and cheddar cheese and you can make “hamburger pie”.

of course i make all of this so i don’t end up eating red sauce 4-5x a week. the canned prego/ragu/classico is too sweet for my taste to be eating 5 nights a week.

We’ll make a big pot four or five times a year and it’ll last us four days or so.

So, on average… We eat spaghetti something like .38 times a week. :smiley:

I make a big batch and then eat it for the next 4-5 days, then go another 5-6 days eating something else.

Spadhetti? Rarely. Pasta? About once a week. Sauces ranging from simple to complex. The wife is an excellent cook, so even when she doesn’t feel like cooking much, the meal is superb. The things you can do with fresh veggies and cavatappi…

Spaghetti as in long round pasta with some kind of red sauce? At least once a week. Pasta in general like olive oil & garlic, or pesto, or alfredo, etc.? Probably 3 or 4 times a week.

A couple of times a month.

Once or twice a month, but some kind of pasta with some kind of sauce at least twice a week.

I’m the rare person that actually dislikes Italian food, mostly because I don’t like tomato-based sauces (marinara, etc.) Gives me heartburn, plus I’m burnt out on it since I’m in Chicagoland and there’s like 16 pizza and Italian joints within walking distance in every town.

So I eat spaghetti - maybe once or twice per year. Never really liked it, only eat it when it’s served to me, never make it.

Once every couple of weeks, tops. Spaghetti is a huge calorie meal. Not good for my waistline.

Once a month, max. Actually, I can’t remember the last time we made spaghetti (or any other kind of pasta, to be honest.)

.75 times a week over the course of a year probably.

Pasta 2-3 times a week - Boy From Mars is from Italy and that’s on the low side. His parents eat it every day for lunch.

Not often spaghetti though - more often fusilli, farfalle, penne etc or filled pasta like ravioli or tortellini, gnocchi too if you want to count that as pasta. I don’t eat meat so rarely with ragu, more often with a tomato, pesto, tuna, mushroom or pumpkin based sauce.

Twice a week maybe. I have no complaints. I could probably eat some form of pasta every day if I had to.

Never. I don’t eat grains. I will occasionally eat it with spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles, but it’s rare.

I could, too. That’s the problem. I can eat insane caloric amounts of pasta. I’m not talking avoiding pasta because of some low-carb diet. I just mean, if you sat me down with a pound of pasta (dry weight), I have little doubt I’d be able to chew through it all in a sitting. Pasta is like crack to me, which is why I have to be very careful in how I prepare and eat it.

We have pasta on average once a month, mostly at a nice little Italian restaurant nearby. Additionally, one or two tortellini salad type side dishes each month.

I can’t remember the last time I had spaghetti. Maybe a month since I’ve had pasta (I don’t avoid it or anything, there just aren’t great pasta options around here and we almost never make it at home, rice is our default starch).
