  • 10 oz spaghetti (I used gf)
  • 2 tbs garlic powder
  • 4 tsp Italian herbs
  • 24 oz marinara sauce
  • 1 15 oz can light coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast, optional
  • salt, pepper to taste


  1. Add all the ingredients, including the optional nutritional yeast if you like, in your instant pot. Make sure to break your spaghetti in half, season with salt and pepper.
  2. Don’t stir the ingredients, just add everything. Also make sure your pasta is complete covered with liquid, otherwise use a spoon to push your spaghetti down.
  3. Seal your instant pot, use the manual mode and set to high pressure and 8 minutes cooking time.
  4. After the 8 minutes cooking time, use quick release, and open the instant pot. Now stir the spaghetti with the sauce.


8 minutes are the absolute cooking time not including the time which it takes for the instant pot reach to high pressure. This usually happens within 10 minutes.
