  3. Using the “manual” mode, or whatever the high pressure mode is called on your pot, set it to cook on high for 16 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large pot, cook the spaghetti according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  5. When the sauce has finished cooking, release the steam, then stir. Add cooked spaghetti and stir to combine. Serve.
