Don’t give up trying new recipes with your family. This Instant Pot Spinach and Mushroom Chicken Spaghetti feeds a lot of people, plus it’s delicious! Say goodbye to traditional spaghetti. 



  • 2 (16 ounce) packages spaghetti
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (16 ounce) package mushrooms, sliced
  • 8 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 8 cups water
  • 6 cups baby spinach, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese


  1. Using the saute mode, heat the electric pressure cooker until “hot.” Add the olive oil and saute the onion until soft. Stir in the garlic. Deglaze the bottom of the pot by adding the chicken broth or water and scraping with a flat wooden spoon. Cancel the saute mode.

  2. Add the spaghetti to the pressure cooker, creating cross-crossing layers to keep the spaghetti from sticking in clumps.

  3. Top the spaghetti with the mushrooms. Do not stir.

  4. Place the lid on the electric pressure cooker and set the valve to sealing. Set the pressure cooker to “manual” or “pressure cook” for 6 minutes. Quick release the pressure when the cook cycle is complete.

  5. Stir the spaghetti, separating any stuck pieces.

  6. Add the spinach, half and half, and parmesan and stir to combine.


In a slow cooker:

  1. In the slow cooker, mix the spaghetti, onion, garlic, chicken stock, and water. Place the mushrooms on top.

  2. Cover and cook for 4 to 6 hours.

  3. Stir in the spinach, half and half, and parmesan cheese.
