  • 6 Quart Instant Pot


  • 1 lb Frozen Meatballs (approx 15-20)
  • 8 oz Spaghetti Noodles Broken in half
  • 22 oz Jar of Pasta Sauce
  • 2 cups Water


  • Add 1 cup of water to liner.
  • Add frozen meatballs to water in liner.
  • Add noodles on top of meatballs- fanning in a star shape to prevent clumping.
  • Add sauce in top of noodles.
  • Add another 1 cup of water.
  • Close lid ensuring valve is in the closed position.
  • Manual or High Pressure for 5 minutes.
  • Will take about 10 minutes to come to pressure.
  • Once cook time is time quick release by pulsing the valve. Open for 3-5 seconds and then close for 2 seconds. Repeat till pressure is fully released.


It will look a little soupy when you take the lid off- have no fear, once you stir it and it cools a bit, it won't be soupy anymore.
