Place trivet inside of Instant Pot, pot and pour 1 cup of water in to pot
Slice the stem-end of the spaghetti squash off and then slice the squash in half, vertically. You'll need a sharp knife and bee VERY careful as this can be dangerous since the outside is so thick and difficult to cut.
Using a spoon, scoop out the inside strands and seeds. Discard.
Place the two halves inside of the pot, facing one another.
Place the lid on, and turn the vent to the "sealing" position.
Pressure cook on "high" and set the timer for 9 minutes.
When the timer ends, quick-release the vent (I use my favorite heat-resistant gloves for this) until the valve lowers.
Once valve has went down, remove the lid and squash and transfer them to a plate or cutting board.
Using a fork, turn the fork upside down and begin scraping the insides of the squash by starting at the vertical-top part of the squash and pulling the fork towards you. This will create a "spaghetti-like" texture.
Serve warm with desired seasonings, sauces, spices.
BE VERY careful cutting the spaghetti squash in half. This can be very dangerous!
