  • 24 oz spaghetti sauce
  • 14.5 oz petite diced tomatoes
  • 2 c. water

  • When pressure cooker is done cooking, quick release the pressure. Stir and serve.



  • Sneak in whole wheat pasta. When you use your pressure cooker to cook it your family will never know.
  • Not a fan of hamburger? Leave it out!
  • You could also use ground turkey or ground chicken instead of beef.
  • Not a fan of diced tomatoes? Leave it out!
  • Cook for six minutes for an al dente noodle and 8 minutes on manual for a softer noodle.
  • Make sure to arrange the noodles in alternating directions to prevent them from sticking together.
  • Get a good quality marinara sauce to provide it plenty of flavor.
  • To thicken the sauce after it cooks turn on the saute function and simmer for a few minutes.
