Ingredients

  • 1 spaghetti squash cut in half lengthwise

Instructions

  • Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds from the centers of the spaghetti squash halves.
  • Pour 1 1/2 cups water into the Instant Pot and place trivet in pot.
  • Add the squash to the pot, cut sides up.
  • Place the cover on the pot and set timer to 8 minutes on high pressure (pressure cook setting). It will take the IP around 13 minutes to build up pressure before it begins cooking.
  • When cooking time is done, do a quick release. When the float valve drops, remove the cover and carefully remove the squash halves.
  • Use a fork to “shred” the flesh of the squash into spaghetti-like strands. Mix in a few pats of butter and serve!
