This is by far one of my most popular recipes, and since it’s hot outside, using your Instant Pot/Pressure Cooker is a great way to keep your house cool! I thought it would be a great time to repost my Baked Spaghetti recipe, especially since Amazon just had the amazing deal on the Instant Pots this week!! (which is still going by the way $49.99!!!) Not only can you get a great deal but Eat at Home is currently doing a FREE Instant Pot School!
I finally broke down and bought a Crock Pot Express this summer and I have really come to LOVE it.
When I first started reading up on how exactly you could make baked spaghetti in an Instant Pot, I was a little thrown by all the water that they called for ! Most of the recipes had some fancy DIY recipe, which was fine, but all I had was a jar of spaghetti sauce. So, you can see how I was freaking out a little to pour all of that water into the mix. I was afraid it was going to be watery and have no flavor!
After a little hesitation, I decided I was just going to do it, and if it was bad we could just order pizza! But, guess what? We didn’t wind up having to order pizza that night! My “Baked” Spaghetti was a success and it was done in no time.
For those of you who are asking: Okay, but honestly is it really worth it to have ANOTHER gadget in my kitchen?
I already have a crock pot…. Well here is MY answer to that. Have you ever bought a roast and wound up throwing it out because your week got jacked up and you never had time to stick it in the crock pot? Well, with the Instant Pot, that would never have happened because you could have made it in there in less than an hour. And yes, the meat is just as tender!
Yes, it is definitely worth it!
Then, you will pour all the other ingredients and spices in and stir them well. Close and fasten the lid. Press the Chili Button, set the time to 5 minutes, and press Start!
