I know that the Keto Diet is all the rage right now and people are loving using veggies in the place of pasta. It’s pretty fun, and sometimes pretty delicious. But pasta, you’ll forever have a place in my heart and no veggie could ever replace you!
Yet, here I am telling you how to cook that spaghetti squash in the easiest way possible, making it even easier for you to push the pasta aside. But hey, more for me, right?! No matter your “beef” with pasta, this Instant Pot Spaghetti Squash will have you kicking those traditional methods right to the curb!
Oh spaghetti squash, you’re running a pretty tight race with the zoodle on this one. If only you weren’t so hard to break into! All you big squash loving folks know what I’m talking about. It’s like a workout trying to get in there. Then once you’re in there, you’ve got to scrape all the seeds and the fibrous junk.
If you’re at this point and wondering why you talked yourself into all this work, don’t give up because you’re practically finished. Now comes the easy part. Toss those babies in the pressure cooker and let that Instant Pot do the heavy lifting!
Don’t forget that you can batch cook this pressure cooker Spaghetti Squash so that you’ve got extras for lunch or supper throughout the week! I’m all about leftovers, and freezer friendly meals. This Instant Pot spaghetti squash can absolutely be frozen and stay safe for 6-8 months!
You divide family size, or even single serve, portions inside freezer-friendly dishes and right into the freezer! To eat it after it’s been frozen, simply let it thaw a little before you reheat it so that it heats evenly and doesn’t overcook and turn to mush.
By the way, does anyone have any ideas on how to get your kids to eat this stuff? My kids are always in the kitchen so they’d see me cooking up this weird veggie- they’d also absolutely notice that the texture of Instant Pot spaghetti squash is NOT the same as noodles- even if they are pressure cooked too!
