Instant Pot Spaghetti and Meat Sauce

  • Author: Beth Djalali



1 pound 93% lean ground turkey

3/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 cup chopped onion

1 clove garlic, minced

1 25.25 ounce jar marinara sauce

8 ounces spaghetti, wheat or gluten-free, broken half

freshly grated Parmesan cheese for serving.


Press the saute button on an Instant Pot.

When hot, add the ground turkey and salt and brown the meat, using a wooden spoon to break it into small pieces as it cooks about 3 minutes.

Add the onion and garlic and cook until softened, 3 to 4 minutes.

Add the marinara sauce, 2 cups water, and the spaghetti, making sure the liquid covers everything. Do not stir, as space will be tight.

Seal and cook on high pressure for 9 minutes, until the pasta and sauce are cooked.

Quick release, then open when the pressure subsides.

Serve right away, topped with Parmesan, if desired.
