Spaghetti Squash is great! Especially as a low carb alternative to pasta.
However, Spaghetti Squash is normally a pain in the neck to cook.
You have to cut it in half, which in itself is intimidating enough for some – who could blame them? You risk fingers cutting hard, raw gourds like hard squash and pumpkins. Seriously.
It takes forever to cook. In the oven, after cutting in half and cleaning, Spaghetti Squash takes like an hour. Who has that kind of time?
In the microwave, it doesn’t come out very good in my opinion, and it still takes almost half an hour. Plus, do you even have a microwave big enough to fit 2 halves of squash? Not everyone does…
Well – I’ve said it time and time again, I LOVE my INSTANT POT! I love it anyways, but I fall in love even more when it makes things like intimidating Spaghetti Squash a freaking BREEZE to make. And, it comes out PERFECT!
I cook it WHOLE – yep, you read correctly – WHOLE! It takes zero effort. When it’s done, its so simple to peel and clean, you’re ready to eat it in NO TIME!
