Instant Pot for the Easiest Meal Prep Ever!

For all my recipes I use the 8-Quart Instant Pot Ultra, its larger than the standard models (which are only 6 quart) so I have extra room to meal prep and batch cook more meals for the week. The Ultra model also has some great extra settings like cake baking and yogurt making which are really neat. I love that everything can cook in one pot, which makes for way less dishes and hands-off cooking. The Instant Pot is hands-down my favorite kitchen appliance, and actually makes my life so much easier.

One Pot Pasta Recipes For the Win

This dairy-free turkey alfredo pasta recipe is the perfect one-pot lunch or dinner! I love a good One Pot Meal, especially during these fall months when the weather starts to turn cooler. Cooking everything in one pot is one of my favorite ways to get a meal on the table fast! All the food gets cooked at once, which makes cleaning up a breeze. And the Instant Pot does all the work for you, so you can focus on other kitchen prep while the food cooks. One Pot meals are awesome for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – check out my link here to see other healthy one pot meals that are ready in no time!

How Do I Make This Dairy Free Turkey Alfredo Recipe?

Set the Instant Pot to Saute mode. Add the olive oil and garlic to the instant pot. Saute for 3 or 4 minutes until the garlic starts to brown. Add the linguine, garlic salt, crushed red pepper, Vegetable stock, almond or coconut milk, peas, and cooked turkey to the pot. Seal the lid and pressure cook for 8 minutes.
Quick release the steam, making sure to not have your hands or face near the steam valve. Once float valve has gone down, open the lid and stir in the fresh parsley. Serve with a salad and thick slice of bread… Mangia!

What If I Don’t Have All The Ingredients?

OK, this pasta is amazingly versatile and you can sub in/out anything you have on hand.
  • If you don’t have turkey, you can use cooked chicken or a plant-based alternative
  • If you aren’t dairy-free, then you can use regular milk instead of almond or coconut
  • And if you don’t have linguine pasta on hand, any long shaped pasta would work: fettuccini, spaghetti, or bucatini are all great substititutes.
  • If you don’t have peas but want to use broccoli or another vegetable instead, go for it!
