Notes

Layers. Its important that you follow the layers instructions above and don’t stir before pressure cooking. Otherwise the meatballs and spaghetti will stick and it wont go to pressure.
Swaps. Did you know a true Italian doesn’t do spaghetti and meatballs? Instead, they do other pasta with meatballs because it sticks to the pasta better. You can also swap spaghetti for any other pasta.
