  • 1 lbs (454 gr) extra lean ground beef
  • 1 medium yellow cooking onion, finely chopped
  • 2 stalkes (pieces) celery, finely chopped
  • 2 larger carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 28 oz (796 ml) can crushed tomatoes
  • 8 cups beef or vegetable broth
  • 3 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 2 cups dried macaroni pasta or other small pasta of choice
  • 5 oz (142 gr) baby spinach*, roughly chopped (equals one clamshell)


  1. Set Instant Pot ("IP**") to Sauté and add ground beef. Sauté , breaking up the beef with a wooden spoon for about 5-7 minutes until meat is in small chunks and starting to brown. Add onion, celery and carrots. Sauté for 2 minutes until vegetables just start to soften and most of the meat is brown. 

  2. Add tomatoes, broth, garlic powder, oregano, basil, and pasta to Instant Pot. Close lid and set valve to sealed position. 

  3. Cook at High pressure 4 minutes. Use quick release to release steam. 

  4. Carefully remove lid and add spinach, stirring to combine. 

  5. Allow soup to cool for approximately 10 minutes (it's incredibly hot! Be careful when serving to children). 

Recipe Notes

* Not everyone loves spinach. Feel free to swap out with frozen corn or frozen green beans - just be sure to add to the IP with the pasta. 

** My Instant Pot is a 6 quart. 

*** STOVE TOP Method: 

  1. Sauté beef in a large pot over medium-high heat, breaking up with wooden spoon until meat is browned, about 5-7 min.
  2. Add onion, celery, and carrots and cook until vegetables just begin to soften, around 3-4 minutes. 
  3. Add tomatoes, broth, garlic powder, oregano, and basil to pot and bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook until tender (9-11 minutes for dried macaroni noodles).
  4. Add spinach and remove from heat.
