  • 2 pieces of bacon cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 shallots diced
  • 1 cup celery diced
  • 1 cup carrots chopped
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp ground pepper
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 3 tsp beef OXO bullion
  • 1 leftover parmesan rind
  • 1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup small pasta shells or macaroni
  • 1/2 cup grated parmigiano reggiano
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped


  • Turn Instant Pot to saute setting, medium temperature.
  • When the pot setting reads hot add the bacon and ground beef.
  • Once the beef is no longer pink add the shallots, celery, carrots and turn the setting to high to get some brown happening on the beef. This will happen quickly.
  • Stir in oregano, bay leaves, salt and pepper cooking another 5-10 minutes.
  • In the meantime mix beef OXO with beef stock.
  • Hit cancel, then pour in beef stock, parmesan rind, tomatoes and worcestershire sauce. If sticking occurs de-glaze with broth and stir breaking up any bits on bottom.
  • Cover pot with lid, turn vent to sealing position. Select pressure cook for 7 minutes.
  • Pot will take a few minutes to reach pressure, then count down and cook.
  • When cooking is complete, allow an undisturbed 15 minute natural release.
  • Start cooking your pasta. Drain and set aside.
  • After 15 minutes carefully, in short bursts at first, release remaining steam in your Instant Pot manually by turning the steam release knob to the venting position. After a few bursts you can leave it release the remaining pressure.
  • When pin drops remove lid.
  • Fish out the parmesan rind and bay leaves.
  • Stir and taste adjusting salt and pepper as needed.
  • Spoon into bowls or mugs, top with fresh parsley and ground parmigiano reggiano. Serve.
