  1. In the opened pressure cooker, add the oil and heat at medium until it just begins to smoke. 

  2. Once the pressure cooker starts heating up, add in the onions, ground beef, salt, and pepper. Then continue cooking until the onions become translucent and the beef browns.

  3. Add the pasta sauce and water to the beef and onions. Stir them then remove then from heat and place them into a large bowl.

  8. Repeat the previous 2 steps until all layers have been used. The final layer should contain noodles topped with sauce.
