We are soup eaters! But I will be honest, we can get bored of the same soups over and over again. So I am on a mission to make new savory soups to add to my recipe list for winter! 

Instant Pot Spaghetti And Meatball Soup

What Type of Meatballs Do You Use For Spaghetti and Meatball Soup

Quality meatballs is key! I bought frozen meatballs that are quality in ingredients used and the flavor is always delicious. 


The meatballs are a main focal point of the recipe, so if you use cheap meatballs that aren’t great in flavor your soup will show. 


Can I Make Homemade Meatballs For Spaghetti Soup

Yes. You can, I just recommend cooking them up, then tossing them into the freezer to get them nice and hard. Then using them in this soup. 


Meatballs can be super tender and the pressure cooker could break down the fresh meatballs as they cook. 


Or you could cook with everything but homemade meatballs and then stir them in at the end. Give them maybe a few minutes sitting in Soup to help soak up flavor. 


What Pasta Sauce Is Best For Spaghetti and Meatball Soup

You can use jar pasta sauce or mix in homemade. I keep jar sauce on hand at all times! It is wonderful to have for quick meals you want to throw together in minutes! 


Can I Use Chicken Broth Instead of Beef Broth

Sure. Feel free to swap to a chick or vegetable broth if you need. It will adjust the flavor of the dish a bit, but it will work. 


What to Serve With Meatball and Spaghetti Soup

  • Salad | This will help lighten up the meal. You could do a classic green salad, chopped or even a Caesar! 
  • Garlic Bread | Garlic bread, breadsticks, are both great for dipping into the soup! We love pairing with some type of bread. 
  • Veggies | Pair with a side of vegetables if you want. Broccoli, corn, etc. 

Serve this soup however your heart desires! 


How Long Does This Pasta Soup Store In Fridge

Store this Instant Pot Soup in the fridge for up to 3 days. Anything after use your best judgement on if the soup is still good. 


How to Reheat Spaghetti Meatball Soup

Reheat by the bowl in the microwave, or pot to warm up the whole pot. I tend to place on stove top and slowly Reheat stirring often. 


I find the next day this soup has even more flavor. As all the juice and flavor soaks into the pasta and meatballs.

  1. I made spaghetti soup by accident today. I usually use the package spaghetti mix and tomato paste. I had jar spaghetti Sauce and no tomato paste. I used Wagyu ground beef, my usual Holy Grail (bell peppers, onions and garlic.) I chopped up Italian sausage and added after cooking the ground beef. I had bow tie noodles. Imagine my surprise after pressure cooking 3 minutes and pressure releasing after 3 more minutes when I opened the lid and found out I made soup. I was disappointed until I tasted it. It was the It was so tasty and flavorful. I use Better than Bouillon (Roasted Garlic) with 4 cups of water as my base. I will be making Spaghetti Soup again. I thought I had invented a new recipe. LOL
