Low-FODMAP Instant Pot Italian Meatballs for Spaghetti

Low-FODMAP Instant Pot Italian Meatballs for Spaghetti  /  Delicious as it Looks


I don't own an Instant Pot. At least not yet. Last year we got my mom an Instant Pot for Christmas and I decided to borrow it for a while to see how I like it. Well, I like it. I'm pretty discerning when it comes to bringing new items into my house. I tend to be more minimalist when it comes to making purchases. I don't like to have a lot of stuff I don't use in my house.



I like the Instant Pot and the one my parents has has all the bells and whistles. I've made several recipes and I'm impressed with how moist and tender the meat has come out. I'm also impressed with how quickly it cooks too. Do I want one of my own? I still haven't decided. Let me know what you think! Do you have an Instant Pot? Do you use it a lot?

One of the recipes I tried out is this one for Instant Pot Italian Meatballs from Genius Kitchen. I made some simple low-FODMAP modifications to it and it was so delicious I had to share. I replaced the breadcrumbs with quinoa flakes (you could use oats too). To make this really easy, I used FODY Marinara Sauce and Ketchup, which I highly recommend. If you don't have either of those ingredients, you can try out my homemade recipes for each of them: Low-FODMAP Marinara Sauce and Low-FODMAP Ketchup.

  1. Place the marinara sauce and water in the bottom of the Instant Pot.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, egg, quinoa flakes or oats, ketchup, parsley, basil,  oregano, salt, and pepper. Roll into balls (I use a cookie scoop to get consistent sized balls) and place on top of the marinara sauce, stacking the meatballs if needed.
  3. Cook on manual at high pressure for 5 minutes, then allow to release pressure naturally for 10 minutes.
  4. Stir the meatballs and marinara sauce together before serving over your favorite gluten-free spaghetti.
