I love spaghetti squash but I personally hate how long they take to make in an oven. This is where this Instant Pot Spaghetti Squash Recipe come in and saves the day. It cooks fast and it is such an easy meal to prepare.In 5-10 min you will have spaghetti squash served for you and your family to enjoy.
Slice the spaghetti squash in half and then scoop out the seeds in the center.
Place a trivet or steamer basket in the bottom of the Instant Pot and add a cup of water into the bottom. Arrange the cut squash halves on top of the trivet and secure the lid. Make sure the vent at the top is turned to the "sealed" position.
Use the manual button to set the pressure cooker to cook for 7 minutes on high pressure. When the timer goes off, carefully turn the vent at the top to quickly release the steam and lower the pressure.
Carefully remove the lid, use a fork to check the squash to make sure it's cooked to your liking. I like my squash to be tender, but not mushy. If there is water collected in the center of your squash, drain it before serving.
To serve the squash, use the tines of a fork to separate the cooked strands into spaghetti-like pieces and remove them from the hard shell.
Use the cooked squash in your favorite recipe and store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
