  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 large garlic cloves minced
  • ¼-1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 28 ounce can whole tomatoes in juice drained and broken up (fire-roasted tomatoes are even better!)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper


  1. Place all the ingredients into the Instant Pot.
  2. Pressure cook for the ingredients for 15 minutes and then let it release naturally.
  3. Using a hand blender puree the sauce until it is a consistency you like! I don't like mine to be chunky...so I blend until smooth.

Recipe Notes

Use canned fire roasted tomatoes for even more flavor!
You can use less or no red pepper flakes to reduce the heat!
Store in refrigerator in a jar with lid...double the batch to have extra sauce!
Be sure to remember that total cook time will vary based on how long it takes to release the pressure!
