  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 cup onion diced
  • 1 ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup green peppers diced
  • 1 bulb garlic roasted- see recipe below
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ⅛-1/4 tsp red pepper flakes optional
  • 14.5 ounces fire roasted tomatoes
  • 4 cups beef stock divided
  • 24 ounce spaghetti sauce your favorite kind
  • ½ pound spaghetti noodles broken in half and stacked
  • 6 ounces tomato paste


  • Set the saute function on the Ninja Foodi to high Add 1 pound of ground beef, 11/2 tsp fine grind sea salt, 1 tsp dried basil, 1 tsp of Italian seasoning & 1 cup of diced onion to the Inner pot. 
  • Break up meat with a non metal utensil (I use the Mix and Chop)and stir until the meat is almost cooked through.
  • Add 1 cup of diced green pepper or whatever other veggies you like. Add 1 whole bulb of roasted garlic (or 3 cloves of minced garlic)and 1 tsp of white sugar (optional).
  • When the ground beef is cooked through, add in one 14.5 oz can of fired roasted diced tomatoes, 3 cups of beef broth (you will use a total of 4). Do not stir. 
  • Pour in a 24 oz jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce. Pour the remaining 1 cup of beef stock into the jar and put the lid back on. Shake to remove all the sauce from the sides and pour into pot. Add in ¼-1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Break ½ pound (½ box) of spaghetti noodles, broken in half and layered in a criss cross fashion. Gently push down the noodles until they are covered with liquid. See post or video below for details. 
  • Add in a 6oz can of tomato paste right on top and don't stir.
  • Pressure cook on High for 3 minutes. Allow to natural release for 3 minutes. Open lid and stir well.
  • Close the Tender Crisp Lid (the pot is off) and let sit for 5 minutes. Top with cheese if you like. Serve and Enjoy! 

Roasting Garlic in the Foodi

  • Cut the top off of the garlic bulb and drizzle with olive oil, wrap in foil. Put it on the Ninja Foodi rack on the low setting and set the bake to 325° F for 35 minutes.
