  • 8 oz short pasta (rotini, penne, ziti, etc)
  • 1 ¼ cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup pasta sauce
  • 1 ¼ cups heavy cream
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp Italian seasoning


  • Put the pasta noodles to the Instant Pot and then pour the chicken broth and heavy cream over the noodles. Press down the noodles so they are mainly covered by liquid.
  • Pour into the pasta sauce and top it with the onion powder, garlic powder, red pepper flakes and Italian seasoning. Do not stir!
  • Close the lid and make sure that the valve is set into sealing. Use the guide (pressure cook) button to adjust the time to five minutes. After the time is up, start the valve to release the pressure (quick release).
  • Stir the sauce and noodles. Top with your favourite cheese, fresh basil, or parsley.
  • Serve hot.
