Spaghetti was always one of my go to dinners when I needed something quick and easy. With the Instant Pot, well, it only got easier and quicker!
Below is a short little YouTube on how to make spaghetti in an Instant Pot (electric pressure cooker). The recipe is below the video.
Instant Pot Spaghetti
1 lb hamburger
1 small onion, chopped
1 ½ t Italian seasonings
1t granulated garlic
1 can or jar spaghetti sauce, 24 oz
1 can/jar of water (the can or jar the spaghetti sauce was in)
8oz angel hair pasta**
Turn Instant Pot (IP) to “Saute” and wait until it gets hot. When it says “Hot” add hamburger and chopped onion and cook until the hamburger is browned. Turn IP “Off”. Add spices. Add spaghetti sauce and water and stir. Add pasta (it fits better if you break the pasta in half). Stir around a little, just enough to submerge most of the pasta in the liquid.
Put lid on IP and press “Manual”. Make sure knob at top is set to “Sealing”. Set the timer for 3 minutes. It will take a few minutes to come up to pressure, then the timer will count down. When the time is up, it will beep. Turn IP “Off” and do a Natural Pressure Release (NPR) by turning the knob to “Venting”. When the pressure is released the the pressure valve will drop down and you can open the lid.
Carefully open the lid and stir and serve your yummy spaghetti!
**If you are using regular spaghetti instead of angel hair spaghetti you will need to cook for 4 minutes.
