    • Recipe Note: Multi-cooker settings and features vary widely across different models and brands.  Refer to the manual for your cooker to learn which functions will produce the cooking methods (saute, pressure cook) needed for this recipe.
    • This recipe can be doubled to serve a crowd.
  • Step 1

    On your Instant Pot®, select the Saute setting.  Add the beef, onion and garlic and cook for 8 minutes or until the beef is well browned, stirring often to separate meat.  Press Cancel.

  • Step 2

    Stir in the spaghetti, sauce, water and wine.  Lock the lid and close the pressure release valve.  Select the Pressure Cook or Manual setting according to which model of Instant Pot® you're using. (If using Manual setting, select High pressure.)  Set the timer for 8 minutes (timer will begin counting down once pressure is reached).  When done, press Cancel and use the quick release method to release the pressure.

  • Step 3

    Stir in the milk.  Season to taste.  Let stand for 5 minutes, then sprinkle with the cheese before serving.
