How to Create This Homemade Spaghetti Goodness:

  1. Prepare the Ground Beef: Set your Air Pot to Saute mode. Once ready, add olive oil and chopped onion. When the onions have softened slightly, add ground beef, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and minced garlic. Cook until the meat is fully done.
  2. Remove Cooked Meat and Add Water: After cooking the meat, add water to the Air Pot, ensuring to scrape the bottom well to prevent any Burn warnings.
  3. Arrange Spaghetti Noodles: Break the spaghetti noodles in half and place them in the Air Pot in a criss-cross pattern.
  4. Add Sauce and Tomatoes: Pour the spaghetti sauce evenly over the noodles. If desired, add the can of diced tomatoes on top of the spaghetti sauce.
  5. Add Water and Pressure Cook: Add water by pouring it on the sides and the top of the tomatoes. Gently push down to ensure that the spaghetti is fully covered by the water. Place the lid on the Air Pot, turn the valve to sealing, and press the Pressure Cook button. Set the cooking time for 5 minutes.
  6. Natural Release and Quick Release: When the cooking time is up, allow the pressure to naturally release for 5 minutes. Then, perform a quick release until the pin drops.
  7. Stir and Serve: Open the lid and give everything a good stir, mixing the spaghetti, sauce, tomatoes, and meat together.
  8. Enjoy Your Comforting Meal: Serve your homemade spaghetti with a side of dinner salad and garlic cheese toast if desired. Buon appetito!
