My family loves spaghetti. It has always been on regular rotation at my house and lately, this version I make in my Instant Pot, has been my go-to. I love that everything is made in one pot, ready in minutes, and packed with flavor. Served with our favorite house salad with croutons and in less than 30 minutes, we have a meal I know my family will love.

How to Make Spaghetti in the Instant Pot

To make my spaghetti in the Instant Pot, you’ll need:

  • ground beef – I like to use a lean ground beef that is 90% lean. You can also use ground turkey if you prefer.
  • Stone House Seasoning – this is our house blend of salt, pepper and garlic that I make in a large quantity to keep on hand for adding seasoning to dishes in a snap. If you do not have it already made and just need it for this recipe, you can use 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder. I highly encourage you to mix up a batch to keep on hand for the future! I think you’ll love it!
  • dried oregano – if you use fresh oregano in this recipe, you’ll only need to use 1/2 teaspoon.
  • crushed tomatoes – I love to use crushed tomatoes in this spaghetti recipe. If you have whole tomatoes, just blend them until smooth to substitute.
  • water – the water and crushed tomatoes help to cook the noodles and to form the sauce.
  • spaghetti noodles – I have tested this recipe with whole wheat and regular spaghetti noodles with great success.
  • Parmesan cheese – grated Parmesan makes a great topping for serving.
  1. Set the Instant Pot to Sauté and add your ground beef. Cook until the beef has browned, about 5 minutes. Turn off the Instant Pot and drain away any drippings.
  2. Return the insert to the Instant Pot and stir in Stone House Seasoning, dried oregano, crushed tomatoes, and water. Stir to combine well. Then, place the broken spaghetti noodles on top of the meat mixture. Add more water, if needed, to make sure that all of the noodles are covered in the Instant Pot.
  3. Seal the lid to the Instant Pot and cook on high pressure for 8 minutes. Carefully use the quick release method to release any remaining pressure from the Instant Pot. Remove the lid and stir the spaghetti to combine. Serve with parmesan cheese.

Make Ahead Instructions

Even though this recipe is ready in 30 minutes, it also makes a great make ahead meal! Prepare it as instructed, without topping with Parmesan cheese, and then allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Here’s my Instant Pot Spaghetti Recipe. I hope you love it as much as we do!

  1. Robyn: This really looks good and can’t wait to make it. I just got an instant pot from QVC and I’m scared to use it – ha! You know…..just trying to figure out how to use it. If I wanted to add meatballs to your spaghetti, would I just prepare them separately and add to the dish after it was done? I wasn’t sure if the meatballs could be made with the spaghetti..?? Thanks much!

    1. Hi Debra,
      You should be able to add the meatballs to your spaghetti mixture and cook in the Instant Pot. Brown the meatballs, add them to the Instant Pot last, and then follow recipe instructions. Hope you enjoy your new Instant Pot. Thanks!
