This foolproof Instant Pot method yields perfectly cooked spaghetti squash in a fraction of the time needed to cook it in the oven. Cutting the squash crosswise actually makes for longer strands of squash, which is ideal when subbing the veggie in place of traditional spaghetti noodles. Top your speedy spaghetti squash with anything from pesto to shrimp scampi for an easy, nutritious dinner. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Pour water in Instant Pot, and place a wire rack in pot.

Step 2

Place squash rings on wire rack. Put top on Instant Pot, and close valve to the “sealing” position. Cook squash on the high pressure setting for 5 minutes. Carefully “quick-release” the steam. Uncover and transfer squash to a plate lined with a paper towel. Allow squash to cool 5 minutes.

Step 3

Slice 1 side of squash pieces, and open rings to form long strips. Using a fork, carefully remove the long strands of spaghetti squash and enjoy!
