  • Add all the ingredients to the Instant Pot.  Make sure to stir well.
  • Set Instant Pot to Pressure Cook for 5 minutes. Once finished, quick release the pressure, taking care not to have your hands or face near the steam vent.
  • Once float valve has lowered, carefully open the lid. Stir the pasta well to combine all ingredients and allow to sit with the Instant Pot off for 5 minutes for pasta to soak up the last of the sauce before serving.  Mangia!


this recipe does call for Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP!) which a great shelf-stable plant-based protein. I realize not many people would typically have this in their pantry so you can totally use cooked ground beef or ground turkey if you aren't vegetarian or vegan.    Just make sure to brown the meat first, and then add it in with the rest of the ingredients.  But if you haven't tried TVP, I'd recommend grabbing a bag to try it out - it's a great substitute for meat that everyone will love.
