  • Instant pot


  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 Lb 85% Lean Ground Beef
  • 2 tsp Cornstarch
  • 2 tsp Onion powder
  • 2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 2 tsp Paprika
  • 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 3 Cups Beef Broth (not reduced sodium)
  • 1 Cup Canned tomato sauce
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 6 oz Chickpea elbow macaroni noodles
  • 1/2 Cup Cheddar cheese, grated (optional)


  • Heat the olive oil on Sautee mode and cook the beef until browned, about 5-6 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the cornstarch, spices and salt all over the beef. Then, pour in the broth, tomato sauce and Worcestershire sauce and stir until well combined. Bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, stir in the chickpea pasta.
  • Cover, set to "sealing" and cook on manual high pressure for 5 mins.

  • Stir in the cheese, if using and DEVOUR!
