Before we get to the recipes, I want to answer a few common questions about making pasta with ground beef in the Instant Pot.

Is There a Way To Make Pasta In The Instant Pot Less Messy?

Yes! There is!

Just like you, I was tired of the huge mess spewing all over my kitchen when doing a pressure release with pasta. So, my hubby and I set out to find a way to make pasta in the Instant Pot less messy.

What’s The Best Ground Beef to Use to Make These Pasta Recipes?

There are a few different types of ground beef that you can choose from when making these pasta dishes. Ground beef can range from 4%-30%  fat content and will vary in taste and texture. You’ll find it packaged at your local supermarket as:

  • Regular Ground Beef: This is the fattiest and most flavorful ground beef containing up to 30 percent fat. It can be very greasy and can shrink significantly while cooking.
  • Ground Chuck:  A very tender, moist and flavorful ground beef containing 15 to 20 percent fat. If you want to add some great flavor to your dish while reducing your fat intake, use this one.
  • Ground Round: Drier and less flavorful than the previous options, ground round contains 10 to 20 percent fat. Since it is less flavorful, I only use this meat when cooking together with vegetables or into sauces.
  • Ground Sirloin: This ground beef only contains 7 to 10 percent fat and is both tender and very flavorful. While it is drier and not quite as flavorful as ground chuck, this is my preferred choice for most dishes because it offers the best balance of flavor with much less fat.
  • Extra Lean Ground Beef: This ground beef can contain as little as 4% fat. If you are restricting your fat intake, then this one is your best bet.

Personally, I prefer using ground sirloin in most recipes but many of the recipes below will give you their recommendations on what ground beef works best for that particular recipe.

How Long Do These Instant Pot Pasta Recipes Take?

This really depends on which recipe you’re making but all of the recipes below take less than an hour to prep, cook and serve. Most of the recipes below actually take less than thirty minutes, and many like my Cheesy Beef & Bowties and Beef & Macaroni Casserole will let you have dinner on the table in less than 20 minutes.
