About this Recipe

Spaghetti and meatballs sounds like a really good place to start. This recipe came together in the Instant Pot in the time it would have taken to bring a stock pot to a simmer on the stove. Plus it’s a great way to turn out spaghetti and meatballs in a fraction of the time it would take to make them in a traditional oven. And, with pasta being both delicious and filling, spaghetti and meatballs are a favorite recipe for our busy households.
