How to make Spaghetti bolognese in the pressure cooker


A little Italiano in the pot!


What's Cookin!


So fun to cook with the family! Since I have invested in the pressure cooker it truly has become a family affair. Everyone’s curiosity has gotten the best of them. Considering we are a big foodie family, it really didn’t take too much prompting to get my boys to check it out and teach them how to cook. It doesn’t get any easier than this.

Today I am sharing how to make Spaghetti bolognese in the pressure cooker. There are many variations of this popular Italian dish. We sort of put our own spin on it. I do believe you can do the same. It’s always fun to put a new twist on food to your own liking.

Our son was home on spring break from college. What is a Mom to do to make his visit home special? Simple. I asked him to join me on a Facebook live cooking episode. It was actually fun and he enjoyed it. Even paid me a little compliment saying after words that I am pretty good at this HA!!~ 

The spaghetti noodles were cooked to perfection in 6 minutes time. No mush, and perfectly al dent’e. Just the way a true noodle should be. One thing our son took note of, is the fact that every ingredient holds the true flavor profile.




Enjoy! Hope to see you back again. See recipe down below.

Step 6

Break your spaghetti noodles in half, doing just a handful of the box to start.
Be sure as you are going to submerge completely in the pot. We used just about the entire box, but not all of it. Mix well and again be sure your spaghetti is completely submerged.

Step 7

Close pot, turn to seal and hit manual for 6 minutes.

NOTES: ***Remember it takes a bit for your pot to reach pressure before it begins count down.***
