At the command line,
$ blastn -help
You are looking for the -outfmt option, which can be simply a number, say 6 for tabular, or a quoted string like "6 std stitlesall" where you list the fields you want (std is shorthand for the default 12 columns).

You can do this via the BLAST+ wrapper object in Biopython too, but be careful about the quotes - see
