TIPS FOR MAKING THE BEST INSTANT POT SPAGHETTI
Follow these tips to make the BEST IP Spaghetti your lips will ever taste!
Use ground pork in place of ground beef for an even more flavorful meal. Other possible ground beef replacements: meatballs, bacon, clams, shrimp, diced chicken breast or ground turkey.
Once you add the spaghetti noodles to the pot, carefully separate them using fork tines but do not stir the noodles into the sauce at this point. This could cause the noodles to sink to the bottom of the pot and cause the BURN notification to alert you mid-cooking.
Add more veggies! If you love veggies in your spaghetti, add mushrooms, green bell peppers, zucchini, eggplant, black olives or english peas to the onion-garlic mixture during sauteing.
Instead of spaghetti noodles, consider using farfalle, cavatappi or penne pasta. Also, you can use a whole wheat pasta or rice noodle for a healthier option!
