How to make Spaghetti Pie in the Instant Pot


Spaghetti pie


What's Cookin!


There are just some foods from childhood that suddenly come back to you as pure comfort food. I had completely forgotten about this dish until today. It’s probably been at least 40 years since I have had it.

It was a side or  main dish on my Italian side of the families that we would have often.  I can even recall eating it cold and loving it. Today I am sharing how to make Spaghetti pie in the Instant Pot. 

It looks just like a pie, just as high and as dense. Can you believe I used an entire pound of spaghetti? And it fit just right in my pan.

The two for one pan!~ You can make lasagna, taco pies, meatloaf and then a pretty  bundt cake for dessert.

I want you to keep in mind you can certainly add some meat to this pie if you so desire. You can add sausage, pepperoni, ground beef, etc. Just keep in mind you may not be able to fit the entire pound of pasta in the pan if you add meat, or even some vegetables. I only remember having this spaghetti pie with perhaps a little diced up pepperoni inside. This also makes for a great appetizer. Simply cut up to bite size pieces and have a side of marinara sauce for dipping. If you are serving for dinner, a side salad will suffice. This is certainly filling.

Pin it, make it:) Love it.

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

Step 1

First partially boil your spaghetti in the pot. I cooked mine to Al Dente. Almost cooked but not quite there yet:)

Step 2

Strain your spaghetti and run cold water in the strainer to stop the cooking process.

Step 3

Using a pan of choice (lightly grease the bottom and sides with olive oil), you may wrap the bottom of your pan in foil. However, this dish there will be no leaking what so ever. I always wrap my pan for cheesecakes and cakes though. Set pan aside.

Step 4

In a large bowl add your Spaghetti and drizzle olive oil in the bowl. Enough that your pasta is completely covered and no noodles are sticking together.

Step 5

Lightly salt and pepper your pasta. Mix well again.

Step 6

Whisk 3 eggs in a bowl (I added a tad of milk to the eggs).

Step 7

Pour the eggs over the spaghetti and mix well.

Step 8

Add in your cheese blends and again, mix well.

Step 9

Add your garlic to taste. I like a lot, my son, however does not. But I snuck more in anyway.

Step 10

I always set my pot on saute mode while preparing a dish I am almost ready to put in. I add two cups of water because your water will evaporate if you choose to heat up the pot a bit before hand. Heating up your pot will speed up the pressure time.

Step 11

Add your spaghetti to your pan. Be sure you add in evenly and pat down if necessary with a spatula.

Step 12

Place your pan on a trivet. If you do not have one, make a home made foil sleeve under your pan so you can gently place it in the pot.

Step 13

Cancel out saute option and hit off. Now start your pot up on Manual High pressure and set for 15 minutes.

Step 14

Once your pot beeps, you may naturally release. Remove pie out and set on a plate to cool down a bit. In about 10-15 minutes you may release your Spring-form pan and dive in.

Step 15

This is great served with a crisp side salad. Enjoy!
