Today, January 4, is National Spaghetti Day in the United States. The nice thing about promotional holidays like this is that there are great restaurant offers all over the nation — some are listed below, but don’t forget to try your local places! If you don’t feel like going out, it’s a quick and easy dish, and most people probably have their very own home recipe.

For people who have the new Science Cauldron (Instant Pot), here’s a new take on an old favorite.

Instant Pot Spaghetti

  1. Set the Instant pot to saute, and cook meat.
  2. Drain grease. Add onions and spices.
  3. Break the pasta in half and place on top.
  4. Mix the crushed tomatoes and tomato paste together. Pour over noodles.
  5. Add water.
  6. Close Instant pot lid and cook on Manual for 5 minutes.
  7. Allow 5 minutes natural release, and then turn valve to quick release.
