Ingredients

  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 4-5 cloves garlic
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 600 grams passata (2.5 cups)
  • 2.5 cups cavatappi pasta
  • basil optional
  • parmesan optional but recommended

Instructions

  • On sauté mode, add in your olive oil and onions. Give it a stir for a minute to soften the onions before adding in garlic and ground beef.
  • Brown the ground beef in the Instant Pot for 2-4 minutes, breaking up large pieces.
  • Add in a pinch of salt and a splash of your beef stock to deglaze your pot (scrape and loosen any browned bits on the bottom of the Instant Pot with the stock).
  • Layer in the passata, cavatappi pasta, and finally the rest of your beef stock. Do not stir. Gently pat the pasta into the liquid if needed.
  • Place on your lid, seal, and select manual and set for 5 minutes.
  • Quick release when done and stir in basil and parmesan if desired.
