Using the function arrows, select PASTA, then press START/STOP to begin program (unit will display an animation while cooking; program will take approx. 12 to 15 minutes to complete). Note that the lid will need to be removed when water comes to a boil. If desired, set an external time for 6 minutes as a reminder.

    Cook meatballs and pasta in the sauce until meatballs are heated through (about 15 minutes).

    When cooking is complete, serve spaghetti and meatballs warm with grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.
