Instant Pot One Pot Pasta with Meat Sauce
Here's a quick, delicious way to get supper on the table in one pot! Enjoy family favorite spaghetti night without a lot of extra dishes or even having to drain the pasta.
Instant Pot Main Dish
ground beef or sausage
half box pasta of choice, white, whole wheat, or gluten free all work
jar spaghetti sauce
spaghetti sauce jar of water
Click the "saute" button on Instant Pot and cook ground beef until brown, about 5-8 minutes. It does have have to fully cook through.
Turn machine off.
If desired, drain fat. (The more fat your drain, of course the healthier. A little bit of fat keeps pasta from sticking together.)
Add 1 jar spaghetti sauce.
Add 3/4 jar full of water.
Add pasta. Do not mix, but gentle push pasta into liquid and move around a bit to prevent sticking.
Turn Instant Pot to "Manual" and set for 6 minutes. If using gluten free pasta, cook for 4 minutes.
When pot beats, quick release and serve.
