      Instant Pot Spaghetti

      Instant Pot spaghetti features a homemade meat sauce that is gently infused throughout the deliciously tender noodles to create a melody of flavors and aromas reminiscent of your favorite local Italian restaurant. The flavor profile is a blend of notes that come from onions, garlic and herbs that finish with a cleansing savoriness that leaves you ready for the next bite. This is a budget friendly meal that is wholesome and comforting and I love to clean the sauce off my plate with a nice piece of torn warm French bread and then wash it down softly with a nice cab. Serve this easy to prepare meal with your favorite garlic bread, rolls or my personal go to French bread, and you will have leftovers for a quick and easy reheat and go lunch the next day. This recipe is also perfect for the young cooks in our house that are on their way to learning how to make good food that is simple to prepare. My boys have added this to their personal menu. It is satisfying to know they can now eat a good home cooked meal wherever life travels take them.

      A plate of tangled up spaghetti noodles are fun to load on to your fork using the universal ‘twist’ technique to make a bite size that is perfect for your personal preference.

      Set the sauté to high. Add ground meat and cook until no longer pink.

      Add onions, garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes or until fragrant. Deglaze the bottom of the pot with the grease. Drain meat and set a side.

      Add water, salt, Italian seasoning, black pepper and red pepper flakes to the pot. Mix well. Add pot sized spaghetti noodles or break the regular sized spaghetti noodles in half. Place the noodles in the pot in a ‘crisscross’ pattern (this will help prevent the noodles from sticking together). 

      Top with marinara sauce and the cooked meat in that order (do not stir)

      Place the lid on. Pressure cook on high for 5 minutes, with a 5 minutes natural release (exercise caution when releasing pressure from the cooker).

      Use silicone tongs to stir and mix the noodles well (this will help to loosen the noodles). Season with salt & pepper to taste. Optional: wait for 5 minutes before serving.

      Serve with fresh Parmesan cheese and garnish with fresh parsley.

      Enjoy!
