How To Cook Spaghetti Noodles In The Instant Pot

Instant Pot Spaghetti Noodle Ingredients

  • Any brand of spaghetti noodles will do, but I recommend staying away from the least expensive brands, like Creamette, and using DeCecco or Barilla instead. You should also use regular spaghetti rather than “thin spaghetti.” You can achieve the ideal al dente bite and flawless texture when you use standard thickness and slightly higher-quality spaghetti noodles that are cooked in an instant pot.
  • Extra virgin olive oil makes a huge difference in flavor, so be sure to get it!
  • Salt- Any salt will do (but I prefer sea salt).

How to Make Spaghetti Noodles in an Instant Pot

Before adding the 12 ounces of spaghetti noodles to the instant pot, you must first break them in half. Add the three cups of water, two tablespoons of olive oil, and a small pinch of salt after that.

Make sure to turn the venting knob to “SEALING” before sealing the instant pot and pressing your spaghetti noodles down into the water. Next, set the timer for about four minutes and press the “PRESSURE LOCK” button after making sure the pressure mode is on “High.”

Following the four minutes, let the pressure naturally decrease for ten minutes or so before quickly releasing the remaining pressure. When the lid opens and the noodles are stirred, the spaghetti is ready to be served with your preferred sauce.

My Spaghetti Keeps Sticking to the Side of My Instant Pot

There is a method to the madness, after all! The simplest way to prevent this is to make sure you break your spaghetti noodles in half before adding them to the instant pot. You should also make sure to take a little more time to press your noodles down into the water before sealing your instant pot.

Additionally, you should fight the impulse to stir your spaghetti before cooking the noodles. This also holds true if you want to prepare spaghetti sauce to serve with the noodles. It is best to fully cook the sauce before adding the pasta noodles, making sure not to stir them throughout.
