Pressure-Cooker Spaghetti Squash

Pressure-Cooker Spaghetti Squash

From:, July 2018

By far the easiest way to cook spaghetti squash is with a pressure cooker. The noodly, low-carb squash turns tender in only 7 minutes in your multicooker. Enjoy it plain as a side dish, or dress it up and use it as a substitute for pasta.

I Like the idea but haven't tried this yet. I have one question before I make it. Is there any particular way it should be placed in the pressure cooker?
