    I’ve made this a handful of times and it works great with substitutions too (like cut italian chicken sausage instead of meatballs, and penne instead of spaghetti). I love how easy and flexible it is, and how there’s just one pot to clean after! Update: OMG, it works with gluten-free penne too. Many thanks for this recipe.

    Super easy and delicious! Both of my kids devoured it. I also love that the ingredients can be switched up a bit, like fresh or frozen meatballs.

    Family liked it. Quick and easy. Some nights you just need that. It was tasty. Everything came out how you’d expect (noodles cooked through etc)

    It came out good. I have to admit that I was worried because I was using gluten-free pasta and it can come out mushy at times but no problem.

    Very good and so easy! Quick to make. I do 12 min. on high pressure instead of 10, add more water (about 3/4 of the pasta sauce jar), stir in extra Italian herbs purée and minced garlic at end, and top w salt and Parmesan cheese. Use whole wheat or chickpea pasta, add sliced mushroom, and use homemade frozen meatballs or one package of Gardein vegetarian meatballs. Usually serve with zoodles on the side (pan fry a few minutes with EVOO, Italian seasoning and garlic n herb) or a steamed vegetable, and a warm bread.

    Excellent! Doubled the recipe and allowed it to naturally release for a couple minutes before quick release.

    Super easy! And yummy but needs some salt I made this in the 3 quart instant pot. I feel it could be 4-6 servings Could use salt perhaps some garlic. it might be a good idea to add to the extra flavorful ingredients to the pasta sauce if you didn’t make yours and purchased premade- then add to instant pot. Will make again.
