I have a confession to make: I am in love with my Instant Pot! If you don’t already have one, I totally suggest making the investment. Sometimes after a long day of work, you just want a dinner that is going to be quick and easy. That is where the Instant Pot comes in. 

An Instant Pot is a really great electric pressure cooker. It speeds up your cooking time by 2-6 times and uses up to 70% less energy! It’s the perfect kitchen tool for a full-time working family that doesn’t have a lot of time for dinner in the evenings.

Bonus, it also steams, cooks rice, sautes and slow cooks. Check out my Instant Pot Basics to better understands how it works.

Ok, I have another confession: I am also in love with spaghetti! There is something so simple and comforting, yet delicious and flavorful about a big bowl of homemade spaghetti and meatballs.

My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Especially after my recent trip to Italy. But I don’t always have time to make my family recipe that needs to simmer for 8 hours. Great for a lazy Sunday, not so great for our lifestyle. 

Now onto this Instant Pot Spaghetti and Meatballs. Spaghetti and meatballs is generally a pretty easy meal to make, but I just love how much more it is simplified by the Instant Pot. 

The meatballs cook and the noodles boil all in less than ten minutes. It doesn’t get much quicker than that!

The meatballs are made with ground beef, egg, breadcrumbs, fine sea salt, white ground pepper, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder and evaporated milk. Homemade meatballs like these ones are full of flavor! When meatballs are made this fast, you really can’t make a case for using the frozen.

The sauce takes a little bit of onion, garlic, fennel seed and Italian seasoning, and mixes it with olive oil crushed tomatoes for a homemade sauce that it out of this world! Combine all of this with dry spaghetti noodles and some water, and voila, you’ve got yourself a homemade spaghetti and meatballs dinner in no time!

Your two “confessions” make me confident that we would be great friends 😉
I am obsessed with my Instant Pot, and I actually just bought my sister one because I’ve been visiting her a week without one and it was torture hahaha
When it gets here, we will definitely be testing this spaghetti!!
