6 Minute Instant Pot Spaghetti Squash

I love spaghetti squash, but it can be time consuming to cook.  We’ve shown you how to cook spaghetti squash in the microwave, but this takes 15 minutes per half of the squash.  We’re going to show you how to make instant pot spaghetti squash in 6 minutes!

Some people believe there is a science to determining the perfect spaghetti squash.  I’ve tried knocking on them, examining the outside and looking at the stem.  In reality…it’s a crap shoot.  I have had the best luck with lighter colored spaghetti squash.
