Easy Instant Pot Spaghetti and Meatballs

Spaghetti and Meatballs has long been my “emergency meal.” A few paltry ingredients. A few spare minutes. Add a salad or a frozen veggie. Possibly some garlic bread. And viola! Dinner is done! Who would have thought things could get easier than that? Turns out I was wrong!

I don’t have to stay in the kitchen at all! With my Instant Pot electric pressure cooker there’s no need for me to stand there at all! There’s no waiting for the water to boil, No more using Facetime to watch for the water to boil while getting ready in another room! Not that I would ever do that…

Yes You can Make this in the Instant Pot!

If you’re a still a little intimidated, and don’t understand what all the fuss about pressure cooking is about, let me use this recipe as a VERY SIMPLE example of what it can do!

Add 4 ingredients: Frozen meatballs, Jar of sauce, Box of spaghetti, and water. Allow time to pressure-ize. Which is 5-15 minutes depending on the temperature of your ingredients. If you’re doing a freezer meal that you’ve prepped ahead of time it will take towards the 15 minute mark, but if most of your ingredients are room or fridge temp it will be in the 5-10 minute range.

Set your cook time for 3 minutes on high pressure. That’s right! Only 3 minutes! Allow to NR or Natural Release for 5 minutes and then go ahead and release the rest of the pressure or QR (quick release) and remove your lid. Mix ingredients to ensure your noodles aren’t stuck together, and you’re ready to serve dinner!

Lets count that up: 5 minutes to come to pressure +3 minutes cook time +5 minutes natural release = 13 minutes and dinner is ready! Now, that’s really not much difference from the stove top.

The difference is you were able to set the table, or do the dishes, help the kids with their home work, feed the baby, have an actual conversation with your honey, or even grab a quick shower; because you didn’t need to be in the kitchen at all! That’s why I love my Instant Pot!
