By far the easiest & fastest way to cook a spaghetti squash! www.thehealthnutmama.com

If you have been following me, you know how much I love Spaghetti Squash! When I decided to go Paleo then AIP over 3 years ago, giving up pasta was really hard for me. Spaghetti squash has become a staple in our house. We have it at least once every 2 weeks, sometimes every week.

I wrote a post a while back on how to cook it the traditional way. Well, I was pressed for time recently & decided to cook one in my Instant Pot.

I will never cook one the old fashion way again! Easy Peasy!
