Simple Creamy Pasta in the Instant Pot
Serves: 6-8
  • 1 pound ground beef, turkey, or venison
  • 2 Tablespoons minced onion
  • 1 pound whole grain pasta, any shape
  • 24-ounces spaghetti sauce
  • 3 cups water
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1½ cups heavy whipping cream
  1. Cook ground meat and onion together until meat is no longer pink. (I usually have meat pre-cooked to stir into this recipe. But you can use the saute function on your instant pot to make this a one-dish meal.)
  2. Stir cooked meat and dry pasta into the instant pot.
  3. Salt liberally.
  4. Pour on spaghetti sauce and water, stirring until barely combined.
  5. Seal instant pot and cook on "hi" pressure, manual for 5 minutes.
  6. Do a quick release of pressure to open the lid.
  7. Stir in parmesan cheese and cream.
  8. Serve!
