You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

This recipe will beat all the records and you can have a fully prepared and incredible dinner in about 20 minutes with minimum amount of ingredients and effort. This is a one pot recipe!

I will list all the ingredients in the description of this video. I am a huge Trader Joe’s fan, so for simplicity I am listing all the ingredients purchased at Trader Joe’s.

begin by preparing all the ingredients.
put meatballs at the bottom of the Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker.
Break spaghetti in half and layer on top. put some oil over the top so spaghetti don’s stick to the bottom of the pot.
Then layer the marinara sauce on top and top it off with 4 cups of water. No need to stir anything, just leave it as is
Set an Instant Pot for 10 minutes on high pressure. Keep in mind that it takes some time to come to pressure . When 10 minutes are up,do a fast pressure release .
