Press the sauté function on your Instant Pot and wait for it to heat up.
Add the vegetable oil to the pot and sauté the onion for about 5 minutes until it just starts to soften and turn colour.
Add the frozen veggies, frozen meatballs, dry pasta, and the stock to the pot.
Press Manual or Pressure Cooker button (depending on your model) and use the arrows to select 5 minutes. It will take about 18-20 minutes for the Instant Pot to come to pressure, depending on how cold the stock is.
Once the 5 minutes of pressure cooking are up and your Instant Pot beeps that it's done do a manual quick release. I like putting a small kitchen towel on the pressure release valve to contain the steam a little bit. It took about 4 minutes to fully release the pressure.
Open the lid, stir in the fresh spinach into the soup. Adjust seasonings as needed and serve.
Make sure you use pasta with the package directions of 9-11 minutes, not the quick-cooking kind.
