Pressure Cooker (Instant Pot)--Instant Pot Spaghetti With Meat Sauce


  • 1 pound ground beef (I used 85% lean)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teapoon salt
  • 1 pound boxed spaghetti
  • 24 ounces spaghetti sauce
  • 4 cups water


  1. Start by pressing the saute button on your Instant Pot.

  2. Add your meat and seasonings to the Instant Pot, and saute the meat, until it's brown (the entire portion of meat)

  3. Drain the fat from the meat. (Be careful the pan is  HOT)

  4. Break the noodles and put them directly on top of the drained meat.

  5. Add the water and sauce in, and mis well. The liquid should be above the pasta, so it doesn't dry out.

  6. Place the lid on the Instant Pot, making sure that the valved is sealed and set manual high pressure to 8 minutes. Let it naturally release.

  7. Once the pressure has come down, open the lid, stir.

  8. Plate, serve and enjoy!
