Like guys. My mind is blown over this instant pot. I am obsessed with it. As a working mom of 2, it is a serious game changer for dinnertime. We make spaghetti and meat sauce or baked ziti a lot in my house. It’s so delicious, quick, and I can keep it healthy and organic when I have control over the ingredients. But one downside is all the dishes. Usually I have to brown the meat in a skillet, then boil pasta in another pot, and drain it in a colander. And if I’m making ziti, I usually bake it in a Pyrex for a while too. That’s a lot of dishes to clean up. I made the most delicious ziti tonight and I only had to clean my stainless steel bowl from the instant pot. Freaking AMAZING.
1 lb ground organic turkey or beef
1 lb organic pasta (I used penne but you could use ziti or whatever you like)
1 25 oz jar organic spaghetti sauce
25 oz water
Salt, pepper, Italian seasoning
Turn the instant pot on sauté mode. Brown your beef with 1/4 teaspoon each of salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.
To make this into baked ziti, top each individual bowl with 3 tablespoons of ricotta and 2 tablespoons of shredded mozzarella. Mix the cheese while the pasta is hot.
