Ridiculously EASY and the best Instant Pot Spaghetti that we’ve ever had! This spaghetti recipe is ready in under 30 minutes and a crowd pleasing one pot meal.
Once you try this amazing recipe, you’ll never go back to making stove top spaghetti.
How to make Instant Pot Spaghetti
Instant Pot spaghetti can be made with ground beef or turkey. You’ll start by sautéing the meat directly in the instant pot. Once that simple step is completed add spices, water and stir to combine. Next, you’ll break the spaghetti in half and evenly distribute in on top of the meat mixture (do not stir). Finally, add your favorite jarred marinara sauce right on top of the noodles, be sure to coat evenly. Place the lid on the pot and make sure the vent is in the sealing position. Voila, all the heavy lifting is complete.
The spaghetti will cook at high pressure for 7 minutes. The next step is a quick release. When you open the lid expect the mixture to look a bit soupy, this is perfection. Give the pasta a good stir for a couple minutes and allow the spaghetti to sit for a minimum of 5 minutes prior to serving.
Best Sauce for Instant Pot Spaghetti
You may use any favorite sauce of your choosing, but might I suggest this delicious sauce pictured below. ROA’S Roasted Garlic Sauce has to be one of the best jar sauce that we’ve ever had. Added bonus, cooking the pasta directly in the sauce results in a richer more flavorful tasting spaghetti.
What to serve with Instant Pot Spaghetti
We love to make easy homemade garlic breads to pair with spaghetti. These scrumptious Garlic breads only take a couple minutes to assemble and three minutes in the broiler on low, and Voila.Print
