    Did my own mods, delicata squash. But the sauce amounts were spot on. 5 minutes rest after cook works well. Dont leave much more than that though. Very good

    I did not add soy sauce, did not have broth, so used an added cup of water instead. Also used all left over toppings from pizza night during saute mode after onions and garlic. Got side tracked and Ipot showed 12 min natural release. I was worried! But no problem it tastes great and texture of noodles is like a baked casserole. Very forgiving recipe!
