Instant Pot Spaghetti Recipe

Using an Instant Pot to make spaghetti isn’t a new concept but it’s definitely one that most people don’t think about! I hear so many people state that they’re worried that the noodles and sauce are going to stick to the bottom of the pot. It’s just not the truth and this recipe will prove it!

Once it’s time for the quick release, the boys are already sitting at the table with their Parmesan cheese in hand. This is because they know that this easy pasta dish is one that never lets them down.

What can I use instead of beef in spaghetti?

For a less fat version, you can use ground turkey instead. You can also opt-out of adding in meat if you really don’t want it and load it full of more diced tomato ingredients, too. (but since this is a meat sauce recipe – I’d recommend leaving in the beef!)

What bread should I serve with spaghetti?

Pairing Italian Bread with spaghetti is an absolute must! Not only does the soft, warm texture of the bread perfectly complement the al dente noodles, but the crusty exterior adds a delightful crunch to each bite.

With its subtle flavors and rustic charm, Italian bread effortlessly enhances the rich and savory taste of the spaghetti sauce.

Plus, dipping a piece of bread into the leftover sauce on your plate is a heavenly experience that should not be missed!

So, next time you indulge in a plate of spaghetti, make sure to grab some Italian bread to elevate your dining experience to a whole new level of deliciousness! Don’t wait, give it a try today!
