With the recent pandemic, I find myself making recipes like this pasta sauce and canning them. Properly stored, it can last up to 1 year. Perfect if the grocery stores shelves are empty.

What I love about making spaghetti sauce in my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker is how quick it is to make. Delicious pasta sauce in about 30 minutes from start to finish (not including the canning process if you decide to do that).

How to Seal Mason Jars

  • Using a ladle, fill sterilized mason jars leaving about 1/2 inch of headspace.
  • Remove any air bubbles by inserting a flexible spatula down the sides of the jars. Adjust headspace if necessary.
  • Wipe jar rims, place lids on jar and screw on bands finger tight.
  • Place jars in a large pot of boiling water for 20 minutes. Move jars to a cooling rack and let cool until the lids “pop”. Do not tighten bands. Let jars cool for at least 4 hours. Test seal by pressing the center of the lid. It should not give. If it makes a popping sound, it has NOT been sealed.

If you prefer to have meat in your sauce, simply add it to the pot when you are cooking the onions. Make sure the ground beef or ground turkey is browned before moving on to the next step.

If you want to add a little zing to your sauce, add some crushed red peppers along with the other spices. I love garlic so I often use 4-5 garlic cloves when making this pasta sauce.
