So, you can imagine my excitement when I came across this youtube video that explained how to make spaghetti squash in 6 minutes in an Instant Pot - you got that right...SIX minutes! I honestly didn't believe it was even possible, so I had to buy spaghetti squash THAT night experiment for myself! ;)
First, I cut the spaghetti squash in half (short-ways), scooped out the seeds, and fit it into my Instant Pot with 1 cup of water. I closed the lid, clicked manual, and clicked the down arrow to 6 minutes.
While the Instant Pot heated up, I sauteed some onions, garlic, and shrimp...and some cherry tomatoes, garlic, and feta. Once heated to high pressure, the timer went off in 6 minutes, and the spaghetti squash was perfectly steamed and tender, and dinner was ready!
The entire meal took less than 20min which made this mama super happy!
PS- for those of you who are not sure WHAT an Instant Pot is...it's a multi-cooker that not only cooks spaghetti squash and meats (even frozen) super quickly, but it also has so many other uses (makes yogurt, boiled eggs, etc etc etc) - Check out this link to read the features for yourself - it's pretty incredible!
