    I cooked tomato sauce first (6min)
    Then added meatballs from freezer (precooked) and spahghetti for second round
    So easy!

    This was a very tasty meal. My whole little family loved it and the clean up was very easy. I plan to make it again but will add some bread as a side.

    Your prep time says 25 minutes, cook time 50… am I missing some part of the instructions? It looks like, at most you’re prepping 10 minutes and total cooking time will be 20 (plus pre-heat time for pressure).

    Wow, how did this recipe get 5 stars? It burned to the bottom and the spaghetti wasn’t done. Finishing it in the oven with more broth.

    This recipe was great! It was very easy to prep and everyone at our house said it was delicious. Next time I’ll add some crushed garlic for a little more flavor

    I used the recipe as a guide for cooking times (first IP meal). I substituted smoked sausage, green onion, various cajun seasonings, thin spaghetti and just enough pasta sauce to cover noodles. Was very good! Noodles were al dente.

    This information is incorrect. I was left with rock-hard pasta. Whoever is writing these instructions is clearly drunk on cooking wine. I had the same problem with the guide for preparing potatoes. Im very close now to returning to a more traditional way of cooking. Goodwill gets a pot, instantly.

    I skipped the saute portion. Threw everything in, plus some green pepper, chopped garlic and several spices I like, cooked for 10 minutes, was perfect.

    This recipe is fine what it is; a quick and easy way to make a decent meal but couple of things you need to be aware of:

    Foremost I don’t understand why garlic is not an ingredient. When cooking Italian always add garlic.

    Second is that the spaghetti came out a bit mushy and not al dente. The recipe calls for the pressure to be high and should I do this again I would use a lower setting.

    Finally I substituted beef for vegetable broth and used garlic infused oil. The result was fine.

    It was OK, not the best. First celery makes it bitter. I agreed with previous note that it should have garlic. I also added italian seasoning since it was asking for crushed tomatoes. Didnt like how the noodles came out in various textures.

    Cooked for 5 minutes with angel hair pasta… cooked perfectly! Not super flavorful even after adding garlic and spices.

    It was good but way to watery. Noodles didn’t cook all the way either. I’ll stick to my normal spaghetti recipe

    I sauteed the meat medium raw added roasted garic that i made in the air fryer. I would replace the celery with green peppers. Keep the carrots and onion. I left on keep warm for about an hour and the sauce thickened.

    Very good! I added a bunch of garlic to my mixture and sauteed my meat and veggies together then followed the recipe for the rest. I adjusted my time to 8 mins because I read a bunch of comments saying the noodles were not done. Will definitely make again!

    I made this as directed. We did not enjoy this recipe. The celery and carrot just wasn’t for us. This was the first recipe that I have burned. I might try this again, however with several changes to the recipe.
