  • Instant Pot
  • Wooden Spatula
  • Measuring cup
  • Cutting Board


  • 1 pound ground beef (can also use Italian sausage)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 12 ounces bow tie pasta
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 26 ounces spaghetti sauce
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¾ cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese optional topping
  • Fresh Chopped basil optional topping


  • Press the SAUTE button and when it has heated up, add ground beef, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. Cook until ground beef is no longer pink
  • Drain grease if desired.
  • Dump uncooked bow tie pasta on top of meat and spread evenly.
  • Pour beef broth on top of the pasta, covering as much (if not all) of the pasta as possible.
  • Pour the spaghetti sauce on top of the pasta. Do not mix - just leave as is.
  • Place lid on top of Instant Pot and turn valve to SEALING (not venting).
  • Press MANUAL (or PRESSURE COOK) and set timer for 4 minutes.
  • Once it's done cooking, do a QUICK RELEASE of the pressure (if foam and bubbles start spewing out, move the valve back to venting and wait a minute or two for some of the pressure to die down before opening the valve back up).
  • Remove the lid
  • Stir in the sour cream and mozzarella cheese and mix until sour cream and cheese are completely melted and smooth.
  • Dish and serve topped with Parmesan cheese and fresh basil.


PRO TIP: By not mixing the spaghetti sauce into everything else will help avoid getting the burn notice.
