Instant Pot Six Minute Pasta and Meatballs

Wednesday, April 4, 2018



Hi everyone.  I hope you all had a nice time celebrating Easter.  We had a good time visiting family and eating a lot of good food.  I just want to thank everyone who stopped by to wish me a Happy Easter.  I am sorry I did not have time to visit all of your blogs, but I appreciate and love all of your visits.


Pasta and Meatballs


Today I am here to share with you another Instant Pot recipe.  Yes, you can make pasta and meatballs in the Instant Pot in four to six minutes.

I looked and searched for some recipes to make Instant Pot pasta and meatballs on YouTube and some blogs.  I was so happy when I saw a recipe for this from the blog The Bearded Hiker and they shared the recipe at our Cooking and Crafting with J & J Link Up.  I was really amazed that it only took a few minutes to make pasta and meatballs in the Instant Pot, and I knew that I had to try this out.

I made mine in six minutes and the pasta was good, but the pasta was a little soft.  The next time I made it, I cooked it for five minutes and I liked the pasta at this amount of time better.

Instant Pot


I just love that this cooks so fast and that this meal can be ready to eat in minutes.  I always seem to be in such a rush to get food on the table during the week.  Using the Instant Pot is the perfect solution for me.

I am so used to using a crockpot and slow cooking my food.  I was so upset when both of my crockpots didn't work, but not anymore!

If you do not have an Instant Pot and like to cook food fast then I think you will love it as much as I do.  This is a great way to cook your food if you are in a rush or hurry to get food on the table.  You can make so many things in this pot and this pasta and meatballs dish will be regular on my menu for dinner.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the week and weekend.

  5. I looked into getting an Instant Pot but decided against it for lack of room on my counters! Hmmmm, I made spaghetti sauce yesterday and it cooked for 6 hours! Quite a difference.

Jaxx has so many delicious instant pot recipes - between the two of you, you are nearly persuading me to buy one! Thank you so much for sharing, and for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link Party. Have a lovely weekend, my friend!

  14. I want an Instapot so badly, but I would have to get rid of something since we have so much appliances. I would love to have meatballs ready in minutes.
