If you want the flavor of a sauce that’s simmered on the stove all day in a fraction of the time, you need to try this Instant Pot Spaghetti Sauce recipe! It’s super easy and yields the most delicious sauce!


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 white onion, minced
  • 5 cloves fresh garlic, crushed
  • 1 (28 ounce) can whole tomatoes
  • 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth (use vegetable broth for vegan spaghetti sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste


  1. Using the sauté function, heat the oil in the inner pot of your Instant Pot electric pressure cooker.
  2. Add the onion and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the crushed garlic and sauté another 2 minutes. Press the cancel button.
  4. Stir in the whole tomatoes (with their juices), tomato sauce, chicken broth, basil, oregano, salt, black pepper, and tomato paste. Stir well to combine.*
  5. Cook on high pressure for 25 minutes, and then let the pressure release naturally.
  6. Use an immersion blender or transfer the mixture to a large blender and blend to the desired consistency. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use.


*Be sure the tomato paste is well blended with the mixture and there is none sticking to the bottom of the inner pot. This will help avoid getting a “burn notice” on your Instant Pot. Another option is to allow the tomato paste to rest on top of the mixture and stir it in after the cooking time.
