One pot Instant Pot spaghetti is one of our favorite meals and done in just 15 minutes including prep time! Great pressure cooker pasta recipe!
Oh one of our favorite meals was cooked tonight but much faster than usual! I am obsessed with my new pressure cooker and 6 other devices in one now and had to make Instant Pot spaghetti in it to see just how much easier it would be. Of course it was easier, everything seems to be cooked in this all in one pot and it came out perfectly in just 14 minutes! Let us share how you too can make this favorite dish so quickly, it’s now one of our favorite Instant Pot recipes. 😉 (affiliate links present)

So yummy right! Topped with some parmesan cheese and a side of bread and you’ve got a great meal that I’d say almost everyone loves…everyone here anyway. This is what you’ll need and a video to show you how you make this easy Instant Pot pasta recipe.
- Ground beef (or ground turkey, or leave out but tastier with meat to us)
- Spaghetti sauce (1 jar, this is what I usually use)
- Spaghetti noodles (this is what I usually use, I use half the box so it’s enough for 2 batches)
- Onion (optional but gives great flavor)
- Garlic (optional but I use already minced and it is really yummy)
- Instant pot or pressure cooker (this is the one I have)
Instant Pot Spaghetti
The easiest Instant Pot spaghetti recipe ever! This is our go to meal in the pressure cooker when we need dinner fast, everyone loves this.
- 1 lb ground beef or leave out if you wish
- 1/4 c diced onion
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 1 jar spaghetti sauce (24 oz)
- 2 c water
- 8 oz spaghetti noodles
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp salt optional, to taste
Put Instant Pot on saute.
Add olive oil, onions, and garlic and cook until onions are softened a bit.
Add ground beef and cook until pink is gone.
Turn IP or pressure cooker to manual, high pressure.
Add jar of spaghetti sauce, water, break noodles into 3rds and push noodles into liquid until they are covered. (do not stir)
Secure lid, close steam valve and set to 10 minutes (if you want more al dente set for a bit less time).
Quick release when it beeps, stir and serve. Done!
** Do not recommend doubling this recipe as it will not turn out properly. Make two batches separately if you want more.
If you’ve never cooked spaghetti in one pot before it is so much easier than cooking everything separately and the noodles turn out perfectly! Instead of boiling them all on their own you’re just adding some water to the overall mixture so it absorbs it from there. In just 15 minutes total (including prep and browning your meat) you have a perfect pot of spaghetti!
If you want more than what the recipe calls for I would recommend making two batches separately, it doesn’t turn out properly if you double it all in one pot (6 qt. size anyway).
If you let it sit what little liquid is there will get soaked up by the noodles and thicken a bit too. It stays well inside the Instant Pot for quite some time so even if we are all getting home at different times everyone can enjoy this Instant Pot spaghetti dish. Throw a loaf of french bread in the oven to warm and top with some parmesan cheese and it’s one of our favorite Instant Pot recipes, you can find many more easy dishes on my site too if you’re looking for another IP meal!
