    Looks fantastic! I’m new to instant pot cooking and have an instant pot 3 quart. I was getting the burning food message for a few attempts. Didn’t realize what I was doin’ until I found that the pot I was using is a duo automatic natural release. This means I didn’t need to push down the release button when I started cooking. I should have left the release button up towards the ceiling bc it automatically does all the work. Then when it “beeps” to show the food is completely I just press the release button down once with my index finger and it will release all the pressured air. I think this was causing my food to burn! I will see tonight if this was what I should have been doin’ all along. Thanks🔥

    Bought my new 3 quart for just this kind of meal. My store makes its own sausage and prepackages various kind of refrigerated meatballs. Some spaghetti and RAO's marinara and I should be good to go.

    This was excellent Doug!! I needed to cook my noodles probably a minute or two longer in my Instant Pot Duo Nova, and will use my own favorite sauce next time – but I love it!! This made enough for two-three people and was worth it! No more boiling pasta on the stove!!

    I just re-watched this and realized I have been following this recipe, almost to the letter for over, 6-months. I even switched to Hunt's Pasta Sauce, I thought I did it on my own, but maybe in was subliminal from your vid? Anyway, switching to Hunt's has saved us a ton of money (6-cents per ounce is hard to beat); and the flavor is just grand. I add Merlot wine as part of the water addition.
    I just happen to have the Ultra 3-Quart too, and I always set the cook time to half of the lowest cook time (listed on the pasta packaging). When I use Angel Hair pasta (a personal preference of ours), I set my cooker to "High" Pressure and "Zero" minutes (a nice feature of the Ultra); it comes to pressure, beeps and goes to keep warm. It works for us. Thanks for the great video and instructions.

    This YouTube answered an important question for me. One BIG reason I bought the 3 quart Instant Pot was to do left overs or pull food frozen out of the freezer and make it in the 3 quart. Quick meals from the freezer, rice and I’m going to try boiling eggs too. I’m excited. I was supposed to get it tomorrow on Sunday but tracking says not which is fine. I hate for people to have to work on a Sunday. Maybe I’l have it on Monday. SO excited ! Thanks for posting this YouTube ! I’m pumped now !

    Spaghetti cooked in the pressure cooker is a total FAIL always. I've tried it a few times and it is always stuck together in clumps and some is cooked, some not. I feel it's better to just do the spaghetti on the stove in boiling water, as usual, then add it later.

    Maybe you could put half the can of sauce in, then add the noodles, then pour the rest over the noodles so you don’t have to dilute it as much with water. Just a thought 🙂

    Do you have a link for your paper towel dispenser? Thanks for the video, I can see that your little tick marks above the word "cooking" also looks like it is missing 1-2 tick marks half way through the batch of them. Wonder why they do that?

    Actually for spaghetti in the instant pot. Fan out the pasta to prevent from sticking. Your pasta looking good Doug. I love the pre cut pasta I use it all the time
