Instant Pot Meatball Marinara Pasta

My kids are huge pasta fans and they would happily eat pasta 7 nights a week if I would make it. But my husband gets bored with the same old pasta dinner. I have to mix it up. Spaghetti every night won’t fly around here. I try to use different meats and different flavor sauces to add some variety. One of our favorites is meatballs! I buy the huge 5lb bag of frozen meatballs from Sam’s Club and we get 3 dinners out of that when I make pasta. 

1 bag frozen meatballs
3 cups water
1 box penne pasta
2 jars pasta sauce

1. Lay meatballs in bottom of Instant Pot.
2. Pour water over top.
3. Add dry pasta.
4. Pour pasta sauce over top.
5. Seal lid and set to manual high pressure for 7 minutes.
6. When done, use quick release.
7. Serve topped with cheese.

This was super fast and easy to make on a busy night and the kids loved it. Everyone had second helpings and asked when I was going to make it again! I love dump and go meals with my instant pot- they definitely save my sanity during the week when I have very little time to prep. This one is a keeper!
