Instant Pot Spaghetti – New YouTube!

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
1t salt
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.


  1. Thanks, Crystal! Love to learn more about my IP, and your video is so easy, even my tween-age daughter can watch and make with me! Keep the recipes coming, please!

    1. You're welcome!! I will.. I'm loving my IP.. and hope to make some more videos very soon.. :)

  2. I'm really looking into getting an electric pressure cooker. Do you really love yours?

  3. Oh yes!! I LOVE it!! I use it almost daily.. it has been a real game changer when it comes to cooking..

  4. Hi! Great recipe! I was confused because you say to do Natural Pressure Release, but I think what you're actually doing is a "quick release". I just started using IP this week so still trying to get the lingo straight. Thanks again.
