Make meat sauce AND Spaghetti Squash at the same time with this delicious one-pot meal ready in under thirty minutes when made in the pressure cooker! To be completely honest, my kids don’t care for spaghetti squash so I boil some pasta on the side for them to serve with the meat sauce – everyone’s happy!
I’ve been getting tons of requests for more Instant Pot (affiliate link) recipes so my goal is to share one new pressure cooker recipe per week. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, this can also be made in the slow cooker 6 to 8 hours on low.
I was experimenting a few weeks ago to see if I can make the spaghetti squash in the Instant pot without having to cut it. I poked some holes all over with a knife like I do in the microwave and set it over my sauce. I was a little nervous I will admit but the results were perfect!
I always save my cheese rinds when I buy Parmesan or Romano cheese, and keep them in my freezer for soups and sauce. They are flavor bombs, I highly recommend but omit for dairy-free, paleo or Whole30! Leftovers can be refrigerated for up to 4 days.
