How to Make Spaghetti Squash in the Instant Pot

I love spaghetti squash, it is such a delicious base for any meal. I used to always roast it in the oven but then I tried it in my Instant Pot and it was amazing! It cooks so quickly and has the perfect texture. You can put a whole squash in (depending on the size) or cut it in half. I have tried it both ways and it comes out perfectly either way.
