Ingredients

  • 1 pound Italian sausage (mild or hot)
  • 1 pound spaghetti noodles
  • 1 jar (24 oz.) spaghetti sauce (add more if you like saucy noodles!)
  • 1 jar (24 oz.) water

Instructions

  • Press Brown/Saute and brown the sausage over high heat. (The HEAt display will stay on.) Press Start/Stop when the meat is browned and crumbled.
  • Break noodles in half and place over the meat. Alternate the direction of the noodles back and forth in a # pattern. Pour sauce over the noodles, then fill the jar with water and pour that over the top. Be sure the noodles are completely covered. You may need to add a bit more sauce or water (or gently stir things around a bit) to get everything covered up. 
  • Press Steam and leave timer at 10 minutes, then press Start/Stop. When the cycle finishes and switches to Keep Warm, let it release pressure naturally for 5 minutes. After the clock reads "5" do a quick pressure release.
  • Stir well with a wooden spoon to distribute the meat evenly throughout and break up any clumps of noodles. Sauce will thicken up a bit. Serve with garlic bread and salad for a quick meal!

Notes

If you choose to use ground beef instead of ground pork or turkey, be sure to drain the excess fat before adding the rest of the ingredients! You may also want to add extra Italian seasoning.
