Pasta, sauce, and meatballs are all made in the same pot for a less-mess, healthy version of classic spaghetti and meatballs.


  • 1 lb. (450 g) 93% lean ground turkey or ground chicken
  • ½ cup (125 mL) panko crumbs
  • 2   eggs
  • 1 oz. (30 g) Parmesan cheese, finely grated (½ cup/125 mL), plus additional for serving
  • 2   garlic cloves, pressed
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) Italian seasoning
  • ¾ tsp (4 mL) salt
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) black pepper
  • 1 tbsp (5 mL) olive oil
    Spaghetti & Sauce
  • 2 tbsp (10 mL) olive oil
  • 6   garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) Italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 4 cups (1 L) chicken broth
  • 1 can (28 oz./794 mL) crushed tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and grated
  • ¼ tsp (1 mL) salt
  • 1 lb. (450 g) spaghetti noodles, broken into thirds
  • ½ cup (125 mL) water


  1. Combine the meatball ingredients, except the oil, in a large bowl. Shape into 1½" (4-cm) meatballs, about 22 in total.

  2. Set the Deluxe Multi Cooker to SEAR on Med and set the timer to 24 minutes; press and hold START. Heat the oil in the inner pot for 3 minutes. Add half of the meatballs and cook until all sides are browned, 6–8 minutes; remove and set aside. Repeat with the remaining meatballs. (The meatballs may not be fully cooked at this point.)

  3. For the sauce, heat the oil in the inner pot for 2 minutes. Add the garlic, seasoning, and red pepper flakes (if using); cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Press CANCEL.
  4. Stir in the chicken broth, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the pot.
  5. Add the tomatoes, carrot, and salt; stir well. Add the spaghetti. Select CUSTOM and set to 8 minutes. When the timer is up, press CANCEL. Press STEAM RELEASE to manually release the pressure. Gently stir until the spaghetti is completely separated.
  6. Stir the meatballs and water into the spaghetti mixture. Select SEAR on Low, set to 5 minutes; press and hold START. Cook uncovered until the meatballs are cooked through, stirring occasionally. Press CANCEL.
  7. Serve with additional Parmesan cheese, if you’d like.
