Instant Pot Spaghetti and Meat Sauce- Countertop Cooking

This recipe was one of the first recipes I made in my Instant Pot. Like the chicken in the crock pot, once I figured it all out, I was hooked.

This is a great recipe if you are just getting your feet wet with the instant pot. It’s easy and is ready in no time!

Ingredients Needed:

  • Ground turkey
  • Dried minced onion
  • Minced garlic
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Spaghetti noodles
  • Water

Ground Turkey: Ground beef or chicken can be used as an alternative

Minced onion: Feel free to use a fresh onion in place of the dried version. Chop into the desired size pieces and cook with the ground turkey.

Spaghetti Sauce: Making it homemade is easy! Give it a try.

Spaghetti Noodles: They will need to be dry and broken into pieces. Regular or whole wheat pasta will both work.
