Instant Pot Spaghetti (Pressure Cooker Spaghetti)
I am sure there are Italians out there shaking their heads at this recipe, but let me tell you what. This pressure cooker spaghetti really brings the dish together and the noodles are flavorful, the meat sauce is perfect, and I bet even an Italian would gobble this right up without hesitation. As a single mom to three kids, I need quick dinner options, because this mom is always busy doing something. I don’t have time to spend extra time in the kitchen.
Mouth Watering Pressure Cooker Spaghetti
You are welcome to use any type of spaghetti noodles you like, whether they are veggie, whole wheat, or the classic kind. Each brand and style have turned out great in this recipe.
You can also substitute the ground beef for ground turkey or even pork if you want. It is totally about the preference of flavor of what you have on hand. We love hamburger in ours, but you are welcome to switch things up, it will still turn out to be one savory dish.
Lastly, as for spaghetti sauce, use whatever brand you like, or if you have some homemade sauce stashed in your pantry go for it. I like to tell people to buy the sauce they prefer. I know in our home we have two or three kinds and those are what we stick with. Every time I venture out I normally go back to wanting my old spaghetti sauce. So pick out whatever brand you generally buy.
How To Make Instant Pot Spaghetti
Simply turn your Instant Pot to saute and toss in your onions and garlic. Cook until you can begin to smell the aroma, and then toss in the ground beef, salt and basil and parsley. Cook it until it is no longer pink.
Then you want to drain out any grease, this helps it from becoming too greasy. Next toss in your broth, tomatoes, and sauce and noodles. Make sure your noodles are covered in liquid or they will not cook properly. Then set your Instant Pot and let it cook away.
Perfectly easy to make and quick. Two things I love and the flavor of this spaghetti is absolutely delicious. I am a huge fan of making spaghetti in the pressure cooker, and will never look back at my old ways. I hope you all enjoy this recipe if you give it a try!
