Instant Pot Filipino Spaghetti – Kawaling Pinoy

6 servings


  • 1 tablespoon canola or olive oil
  • 4 Filipino hot dogs, cut on a bias about 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, seeded, cored, and chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, seeded, cored, and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 package (12 ounces) uncooked spaghetti
  • 1 package (24 ounces) sweet-style Filipino spaghetti sauce
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 3 cups water or beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • shredded quick-melt cheese


  • Using the SAUTE feature on NORMAL, heat the canola oil. 

  • Add the hot dogs and cook until lightly browned. Remove from pan and set aside.

  • Add ground beef, breaking apart with the back of the spoon. Cook, stirring regularly until no longer pink and begins to render fat.

  • Add onions, bell peppers, and garlic and cook until softened. Drain the meat of any excess grease.

  • Add Italian seasoning and salt and pepper to taste.

  • Return the hot dogs.

  • Break the uncooked spaghetti in half and place them in the pot on top of the meat in a crisscross pattern to prevent the noodles from sticking together when cooked.

  • Add spaghetti sauce, diced tomatoes, and water. Sprinkle the sugar. Do NOT stir. Push the noodles down gently so they’ll be submerged in the liquid.

  • Close the lid of the Instant Pot, setting the valve in the SEALING position.

  • Cook on HIGH pressure for 7 minutes. 

  • When the 7 minutes are up and the pressure cooker beeps, do a QUICK release. Press CANCEL to turn off the Instant Pot and carefully open the lid.

  • Let noodles stand for about 1 to 2 minutes and then stir to distribute the sauce.

  • Ladle on serving plates and garnish with shredded cheese. Serve hot.


  • The pasta will be soupy initially but will start to absorb the sauce. Let stand for a few minutes before stirring.
  • For a creamy and cheesy consistency, toss in Parmesan or quick melt cheese in the pot with the hot pasta to melt.
