My first recipe using the 6 Quart Instant Pot. I have had the pot for almost 2 years and was so fearful of using it. My daughter kept sending me recipes on Facebook and I bought a Spaghetti Squash and made up my mind to cook it in the Instant Pot with her help. It was so easy. I've cooked Spaghetti Squash every way imaginable but the Instant Pot cooked it perfectly. This will be the only way I cook Spaghetti Squash from now on. I can't wait to try other foods and recipes.
