Let’s Get Started

First, decide if you will be roasting you squash in the Instant Pot or oven.

Oven: Cut squash in half, scoop out seeds. Bake at 350° for 1 hour.

Meanwhile, brown meat in pan, breaking into small bits. When done, remove from heat and add the jar of Alfredo.

In a small bowl, whisk together ricotta, egg, parsley and garlic. Salt and pepper to taste.
