Recipe Notes

 If you don’t have an Instant pot, you can use your crock pot. Just omit the oil and skip step 2. Instead place all the veggies into your crock pot, then add stock and frozen meatballs. Cook on low for 2-3 hours. Then add pasta and spinach and cook for another 30-40 minutes or until pasta is done.
