According to the addictedtoketo Instagram account, spaghetti squash that’s prepped and ready to pop in the oven has been spotted at Costco. So get ready to eat a whole lot more of this noodle alternative.

This spaghetti squash can be ready in just six minutes, according to the package, and sells for $4.99 in Hawaii, where it was spotted. Dinner in six minutes for less than five bucks? That’s quite the deal!

These boxes were found at the Costco in Hawaii, and Delish confirmed that they’re already available in California. Here’s hoping that if these aren’t available nationwide already, they will be very soon.
