Pressure Cooker Spaghetti

The easiest one-pot spaghetti recipe ever!  

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 1 lb Lean Ground Beef or Ground Turkey
  • 1 tsp each garlic powder, onion powder, italian seasoning More or less to your family's taste
  • 8 oz Spaghetti Noodles
  • 1 24 oz Jar of Spaghetti Sauce
  • 1 14.5 oz Can of Diced Tomatoes
  • 35 oz Water


  1. Set your pressure cooker to "saute" or brown". Add the ground beef along with the garlic powder, onion powder, and Italian seasoning. Cook the meat until it is completely browned (about 5 minutes).  If necessary drain any excess grease from meat.  

  2. Break the spaghetti in half and put it on top the ground beef.  Try crisscrossing your noodles when adding to avoid any clumping that might occur.  

  3. Then pour in the spaghetti sauce, diced tomatoes, and water.  I used the jar from the spaghetti sauce and filled it up 1.5 times with water.  Be sure that the spaghetti noodles are completely submerged under the liquid.  

  4. Close and lock your pressure cooker.  Set to manual mode, high pressure for 8 minutes.  When the timer is done use the quick release valve to release the pressure.  Stir well and Enjoy!!

Recipe Notes


The spaghetti may appear a bit watery right after cooking but will thicken up after stirring.  

I used a 6 qt pressure cooker for this recipe.
