Cut the spaghetti squash in half, crosswise (not the long way). To avoid cutting in half while the squash is hard, you can also microwave for a few minutes first to soften.
Scoop out the seeds and discard.
Add 1 cup of water to the pot. Place the spaghetti squash halves in the instant pot, with the cut sides facing up.
Place the lid on the pressure cooker and cook on high pressure for 7 minutes.
After the 7 minutes, quick release the valve at the top of the pressure cooker to lower the pressure.
Remove the lid and the squash. Poke the squash to ensure it's tender. Shred the squash with a fork to create "spaghetti."
You can also put the whole spaghetti squash in the Instant Pot without cutting it first. I've found I actually enjoy this method more. You will have to cut into the squash once it is cooked and remove the seeds.
