I use low-fat cheeses and a regular jar of pasta sauce to make this easy.  You can definitely add in extra vegetables if you want, but I stick with the classics for our family. The points value listed shows points for Trader Joe’s frozen turkey meatballs.  You may want to verify the points depending on the meatballs you use.

I use the Instant Pot Duo60 10-in-1 6 quart option for our family since it is large enough for big meals.  If you are new to using your instant pot check out this post on how to set up your instant pot.

  1. Ugh I keep getting the burn message. Bummed because it looks so good. Thinking I should t have stirred just layered

  2. Help… After preheating and in pressure cook for 2 minutes it showed burn – noodles were not fully cooked.
    What did I do wrong?

  3. All it did was burn in the IP. Put it in a pan and in the oven at about 375 for 20ish minutes and then it was edible.
