Pasta meat sauce in the pressure cooker. Just dump it and go in the pressure cooker, no futzing, no mess, absolutely delicious

I could eat pasta every meal, easily.  I love a red meat sauce.  I wanted to do a quick, easy, no fry, just dump and cook version of my other pressure cooker recipe, this is it.

**On a side note, I recently bought the Ninja Storm off QVC of all things and I absolutely love this thing, super easy, small but big capacity, has great power and it actually does everything it's supposed to.  IF you're in the market for a blender... consider this thing.  No, I don't get compensation for any recommendation, but for the price, it's pretty sweet.



1 onion
1 carrot
1 rib of celery
2-3 garlic cloves
1 lb meat of your choice (beef, pork, chicken, or any combination)
1 24oz jar crushed tomato
salt, pepper, bay leaves, oregano,
whatever herbs or flavorings you like in your pasta sauce, i.e. basil, sage
tomato paste


Chop up the onion, celery and carrot till it's small. Throw it in the pressure cooker bowl.  Chop up the meat as well and throw that in.
Dump it all in the pressure cooker bowl, chop some garlic and add a couple fresh bay leaves and a some dried oregano, add pepper... lots 
 Add a big blob? (I use about half a little can ) of tomato paste, and a jar of crushed tomatoes, add a little water to make it sort of loose like the picture, you don't want it soupy ut you need it pretty moist.
Lock and load, high pressure, 20 minutes. You can release immediately or leave it, it doesn't matter either way.
You can scoop off the little bit of fat on the top, or not, I don't, just stir it in and leave it on warm if you're eating shortly or leave it to cool and shove in the fridge or freezer...  it's delicious, thick, rich, deeply flavored and easy as heck to do... 

Serve over your favorite pasta, add cheese... eat 

Go make this!
