I love instant pot recipes because they really are one-pot meals. When I make this casserole the traditional way, I have to brown the beef in a separate pan, cook the pasta in another pot, then transfer it all to a casserole dish to bake in the oven. In the Instant Pot, I keep everything in one pot.
