These Easy Instant Pot Spaghetti & Meatballs are one of those shortcut recipes that maybe even shouldn’t be called a “recipe”.  With a handful of pantry/freezer ingredients, you can have a meal ready in under 30 minutes!  




  1. Pour the spaghetti sauce and 1 cup of water into your Instant Pot. Stir.  Pour in the meatballs and stir again until they’re all coated.
  2. Lock the lid and set the vent to “Sealed”.
  3. Set to manual pressure for 10 minutes.*
  4. After it beeps, you can quick release and the sauce and meatballs are ready to eat!
  5. While the Instant Pot is doing it’s thing, cook the noodles according to package directions.  I use a big pot, lots of water and a generous palm-ful of salt.
  6. Serve the sauce and meatballs over noodles and enjoy!!
