WHY MAKE THIS RECIPE?
This Pasta Sauce is jam-packed with bold and delicious flavor. It tastes like it has been simmering on the stove all day long and it is done in a fraction of the time! The Instant Pot is the secret to the recipe!
1 lb ground beef 1 lb ground sausage 1 yellow onion 4 cloves garlic 56 oz crushed tomatoes 24 oz marinara sauce 6 oz tomato paste 1 tbsp Italian seasoning 1 tbsp fennel seeds 2 bay leaves 1 tbsp sugar 1 tsp salt & pepper
Set Instant Pot to saute. Add the ground beef, sausage, garlic and onion and cook until meat is no longer pink; drain, if needed.
Add the tomatoes, marinara sauce, tomato paste and spices to the pot; mix well. Deglaze the pot (remove bits from the bottom with a spoon).
Place the cover on the pot, set timer to 10 minutes on high pressure (pressure cook setting).
When cooking is done, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes; do a quick release.
Remove cover, stir and remove/discard bay leaves.
Serve with your favorite pasta and top with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
Store leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge!
If you are searching for a sauce with even more flavor, try adding 1/4 to 1/2 cup red wine!
In place of the crushed tomatoes, you can use 6-8 cups fresh tomatoes or frozen tomatoes, thawed and chopped (juices included) – this equals about 30-40 Roma tomatoes.
