Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 25 mins
Servings 4 people


  • 32 ounces Spaghetti Sauce Your choice on type, but the higher quality the better.
  • 1 pound Ground Beef The leaner the better.
  • 1/2 pound Spaghetti
  • 1 can Diced Tomatoes Undrained.
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 2 cups Water
  • 2 tablespoons Cream Cheese Optional.
  • 1 dash Salt
  • 1 dash Pepper


  • The first step is to put the Instant Pot on the Saute setting.
  • After that, add in the various seasonings and ground beef.
  • Cook the ground beef and make sure that it is in small pieces.
  • If you need to drain excess grease, you can do that now.
  • Put in the spaghetti noodles, breaking them in half. Criss-Cross them so that they are over top of the cooked ground beef. This will ensure the noodles do not stick to one another.
  • Next, put the diced tomatoes, water, and spaghetti sauce over the noodles.
  • Squish down the noodles so that they are fully under the liquid.
  • Put the lid on the Instant Pot and seal the valve.
  • Cook on the "Pressure Cook" setting for 8minutes.
  • Once the time is up, quick release the pressure. You can now add in the cream cheese for a thicker sauce. Mix that around a bit and now your meal is ready to serve.
