Pressure Cooker Love Times Two!

Last March I shared my love for my new pressure cooker,well today I'm going to heap a little more love on it!

I originally bought it because dried beans can be cooked in 45 minutes. Last week I discovered a new reason to love it; acorn squash in 10 minutes!

Yes, you read that correctly, 10 minutes to get squash that's cooked so completely it pulls away from it's skin. That's a game changer for me. I love stuffed acorn squash and to be able to have it in 10 minutes rather than the hour it takes to cook in an oven, well, that's *heaven*.

Here's how you too can have perfect acorn squash in 10 minutes.

First, cut your squash in half lengthwise and clean out the seeds and stringy guts.

Next, pour about two cups water in the bottom of your pressure cooker and place a steamer basketinside using caution not to scratch the Teflon coating in the pressure cooker. Now, add your squash.

Set pressure cooker to high and cook for 10 minutes.

While the squash is cooking, on a skillet cook the stuffing for the squash. You can use whatever sounds good, I usually use some sausage, bell peppers, garlic, onions, and chili peppers. Grate a little cheddar cheese (or a lot) for the top.

After the squash is finished cooking, spoon in the stuffing and top with cheese!

What's better than stuffed acorn squash? Stuffed acorn squash in 10 minutes!!!
