Can You Cook Spaghetti Noodles In An Instant Pot

How to make pasta in the Instant Pot

Regardless of the type of pasta, the methodology is the same. To make 8 ounces of pasta you will need 2 cups of broth and 1 tablespoon of butter. I use water with Better than Bouillon rather than broth, but the same methodology is in place for cooking the pasta.

You should deduct one minute from the cooking instructions and cut the pasta’s cooking time in half. For pasta that calls for 9–11 minutes, I therefore divide the recommended time in half and deduct one minute. It will cook for 4 minutes on high pressure. Pasta like this thin spaghetti is now prepared for your next meal. I tend to make macaroni and cheese or cheesy spaghetti. Add milk or cream, parmesan, and mozzarella cheese to the Instant Pot Pasta if you want to make cheesy spaghetti.

When the pasta is combined with the cheese and cream, it is ready to be served. I like to serve this pasta with pan-fried pork chops, baked brown sugar and garlic chicken, or grilled chicken. My kids could eat their weight in that delicious side dish of cheese-filled spaghetti.

I totally recommend using an Instant Pot Ultra. It has more settings and has been my preferred Instant Pot between the Ultra and Duo.
