  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce (optional)
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp paprika (preferably smoked paprika)
  • 1/2 tsp each salt & pepper
  • 1 (796mL) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 lb macaroni pasta
  • 1 (680mL) jar tomato sauce
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (optional)


  • Turn Instant Pot to saute mode. Add olive oil and ground beef, sauteeing for 2-3 minutes until browned. Add onion, garlic, Worcestershire, Italian seasoning, paprika, salt & pepper, stirring for 1-2 minutes. Turn off saute mode, then add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, macaroni, and beef broth in that order, gently pushing pasta under the liquid.
  • Place lid on Instant Pot and make sure valve is set to seal. Press the pressure cook button and set to high, then cook for 5 minutes. Instant Pot will take about 10-15 minutes to come to pressure then pressure cook the 5 minutes.
  • Do a quick release of the pressure on the Instant Pot by flicking the switch at the top with a spoon. Open the lid when pressure gauge has dropped and the lid opens easily.
  • Stir in cheese, garnish with parsley, then serve and enjoy!
