Why Cook Spaghetti & Sauce Together?
There's something special about it when you cook Spaghetti and Sauce together in one pot.
As it cooks, the spaghetti releases starch into the sauce, giving the sauce a creamy texture and rich flavor.
It’s important to get the ratios correct and add broth at the start of cooking since the spaghetti will absorb the broth as it cooks.

What else can I add to my recipe?

While the dish itself is very good you need to clarify if you’re using a 10 oz can of Rotel tomatoes with chilies or a 14 oz can of diced tomatoes with chilies. Also when steaming the noodles n cheeses the cheese burnt to the bottom my instapot. Took forever to clean it
Thanks for the feedback, I'm sorry about the sticking and cleaning! Could help to let the inner pot soak for a bit. Glad you enjoyed the dish.
I need to clarify if you use 10 oz Rotel tomatoes or 14 is cand of chopped tomatoes with green chilies?? Also no STEAM option on my instapot.
