Instant Pot Meat Sauce – With Oregano Seasoning – Collaboration With Ciao Gusto

I love making sauce because it tastes so much better than buying it in a jar. If you haven’t ever made your own spaghetti sauce, you don’t understand just how much better it is homemade.

This Instant Pot Meat Sauce can be used for anything and everything including spaghetti. It has super tasty oregano seasoning from Ciao Gusto and once you make it, you won’t want to go back to the jar stuff!

Homemade is always so much tastier!

6 Creative Ways To Use Meat Sauce

The best thing about making a big pot of meat sauce is that it is affordable and versatile. I mean if you think about it, meat sauce is pretty much pasta’s soulmate meaning you can use it for just about anything pasta related. However, you don’t have to just use it for pasta. Here are 5 ways you can use your meat sauce other than just on your pasta noodles:

  1. Instead of using tomato sauce, use this meat sauce in our Instant Pot Meatballs Recipe.
  2. Make a healthy dish by using your meat sauce with spaghetti squash.
  3. If you are looking for an easy side dish, simply add your sauce to some zucchini boats and top with cheese.
  4. Top your meatloaf with it. Add a kick of flavor and a little more meat to your meatloaf.
  5. Mix it into your favorite recipe of Ratoulli. It gives it a little more protein and an extra burst of flavor.
  6. Make Eggs in Purgatory as a hangover helper. Simply simmer 1 cup of meat sauce in a skillet, add clove, red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper, and 2 eggs. Cook until the whites are set.
