Spaghetti Squash Pasta

I just love my Instant Pot.  Super easy to use and a big time saver.  I used it to cook the squash for this Spaghetti Squash Pasta recipe. Have you tried spaghetti squash?  It’s awesome for making squash pasta for those that do not have a spiralizer.  This recipe is super easy to make. If you don’t have an instant pot, I will write directions for the oven as well.

I added some pepitas to mine for a little extra protein.  This recipe is vegan, gluten free and paleo approved.  I bet chickpeas would be a nice addition in here as well.
