Ingredients

  • 1 lb extra-lean (at least 90%) ground beef
  • 1/2 cup Progresso™ Italian style panko crispy bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 jar (24.5 oz) Muir Glen™ organic tomato basil pasta sauce
  • 2 1/2 cups Progresso™ beef flavored broth (from 32-oz carton)
  • 12 oz uncooked spaghetti, broken in half
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese, as desired
  • Shredded fresh basil leaves, as desired

Steps

  • 1
    In large bowl, mix beef, bread crumbs, onion, milk, egg, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Shape mixture into 12 (2-inch) meatballs.
  • 2
    On 6-quart Instant Pot®, select SAUTE; adjust to normal. Heat oil in insert. Add meatballs; cook 4 to 5 minutes without moving, until meatballs release easily from bottom of insert. Turn; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until browned on second side. Turn one more time; cook 2 to 3 minutes on third side, until browned. Select CANCEL. Using tongs, transfer meatballs to plate.
  • 3
    Stir pasta sauce and broth into meatball drippings in insert. Stir mixture to loosen browned bits from bottom of insert. Stir in spaghetti; coat in sauce mixture.
  • 4
    Place meatballs evenly over spaghetti mixture. Secure lid; set pressure valve to SEALING. Select MANUAL; cook on high pressure 8 minutes. Select CANCEL. Set pressure valve to VENTING to quick-release pressure.
  • 5
    Gently stir mixture 30 to 60 seconds or until spaghetti is completely separated. Spaghetti will appear to be stuck together but will separate while stirring. Let stand 5 minutes. Top with Parmesan and basil.

  • Be careful not to turn meatballs before they are fully browned. This can cause the tender meatballs to tear.
  • It’s important to use 90% extra-lean ground beef for this recipe to prevent sauce from being too fatty.
