Just like the Instant Pot spaghetti squash, these noodles are a perfect low-carb substitute for spaghetti pasta. The zoodles are delicious, healthy and you can make them in your Instant Pot pressure cooker in only 5 minutes!

In combination with garlic, parmesan and basil or with your favorite pasta sauce you can a complete meal.

It's a great way to diversify the usual Instant Pot zucchini, so you should really make it next time you want something healthy and special.

  1. I made this recipe minus the bay leaf as I didn't have it and the folks that ate it enjoyed it. I was surprised that I didn't taste the lemon juice, which made it taste really great. I would make it again.

  2. I wish people wouldn't comment until they've actually tried the recipe! "Looks great" is not that useful!
