How do i position the squash? Can i stack the halves?
Same question. How do you place the squash
Amazingly easy and great texture!
Incredibly easy! It was so tender the strands fell away from the shell, no scraping needed!
Easiest cooking method ever! Got every bit of squash out of the skin.
First time making it in the IP. So much faster than in the oven. I think I may season them before coming and see how that turns out!
Just got my IP duo today and made my spaghetti squash. Outstanding!!! Somsoft and delicious. I used to set to 400 in the oven for 30 min and still wasnt this tender! Great flavor with some sea salt and olive oil e. I LOVE my IP!!
The strands wind crosswise not lengthwise – suggest cutting in half width-wise. You’ll get more pasta like long strands.
I would recommend cooking it longer for softer squash. I had to do a total of 13 minutes. Otherwise…easy peasy and tasted great!!!
no one answered if you can stack the halves in the instapot?
In the video it shows how they placed the halves on their sides inside the IP, not stacked on top of one another. Ive found that most squashes under 3.5 pounds fit perfectly into my 6qt pot. Hopefully this helps.
Soooooo easy! I cooked the squash for 8 minutes while I made chicken, mushrooms, spinach, and some sauce. Next time I’ll cut it around the middle rather than length-wise, because i ended up with really short noodles. I’ll also probably do 6 minutes instead; the al dente isnt crunchy, but the 8 minute noodles did get a bit too mushy for me.
Quickest, easiest method! Perfect!
1 cup of water wasn’t enough for my 8 qrt pot. Perhaps a pot size should be referenced in the recipe.
Recipes are mainly desired for the 6 Quart as that is the most popular size. The 8 Quart requires around 2 cups of water. For anything that requires steaming and only using water to pressurize use 1.5 – 2 cups instead. Not all recipes will need additional water or adjusting, with experience and familiarity with pressure cooking you will be able to know which recipes may need more liquid.
Really needed 8 min.
I cook mine for 13 without cutting it just have to let it cool down before cutting it and scrapping the insides out
Cooked it 8 minutes. Perfect with a cheese sauce, greens and garlic bread.
