  • Using your hands, form (10-15) meatballs and place them into the Instant Pot. Seal lid and cook for 8 minutes set to Pressure Cook (high, normal & keep warm). NOTE: Instant Pot is a pressure cooker. In order to pressurize the cooking pot, the unit will spend about 10 minutes pressurizing. After pressurized, the cook timer will start to count down. Allow Instant Pot time to depressurize and cool down before serving. Pair with gluten free pasta and top with Parmesan.
