Ingredients

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients (except spaghetti sauce) until well mixed. Mixing together with your hands works great.
  • Form into balls using hands or small ice cream scoop. You want them to be slightly smaller than a golf ball.
  • Spray bottom of Instant Pot with cooking spray and add spaghetti sauce.
  • Place meatballs over the sauce, layering them if necessary. It's OK if they touch, just don't squish them too much.
  • Place lid on Instant Pot and switch valve to "sealing". Press "Manual" and set to high pressure for 7 minutes.
  • After you hear the timer go off, allow to slow release for another 5 minutes and then do the quick release (you do this by carefully switching the tab to "venting").
  • Remove lid from Instant Pot, stir, and serve over cooked pasta noodles.
