  • 1 lb extra-lean ground beef
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp each salt & pepper
  • 1 (796mL) can diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 2 cups dried rotini pasta
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Optional toppings

  • 4 slices turkey or pork bacon
  • 1 fresh jalapeño pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 tomato chopped
  • 1 small red onion diced


  • Heat a large saucepan over med-high heat. Add ground beef and onion, cooking for 3-4 minutes before stirring in garlic ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and salt & pepper.
  • Add in diced tomatoes, beef broth and pasta. Bring to a boil before covering, reducing heat and simmering and stirring occasionally until pasta is cooked and has absorbed most of the liquid, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile cook bacon (if serving) in a pan until crispy and prepare other toppings.
  • Remove pasta from heat and stir in cheese. Garnish with bacon, tomatoes, red onion and sliced jalapeño peppers, then serve and enjoy!


  • Turn Instant Pot to saute mode. Saute ground beef and onions for 4-5 minutes, or until beef is browned.
  • Add all remaining ingredients to the Instant Pot in order they are listed above, with the exception of cheese and toppings.
  • Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes, then do a quick release of the pressure.
  • Stir in cheese, then serve topped with toppings of choice. Enjoy!
