Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Cook: 10 min.

This squash is perfect as a side dish, or top it with canned tuna to serve it as an entree. I use my own home-canned tomatoes for the best flavor. The dish is easy, tasty and light! —Carol Chase, Sioux City, Iowa

  1. Place trivet insert and 1 cup water in a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker. Set squash on trivet, overlapping as needed to fit. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 7 minutes. Quick-release pressure.
