Instant Pot Pasta recipes are the go-to for busy weeknight meals. These classic one-pot recipes are quick and delicious with half the effort. Best part? There is just one pot to clean.
We love that pasta can be made in less than 20 minutes in the Instant Pot with mostly hands-off cooking time. I love that I do not have to drain out the hot pasta water and instead use it to make the pasta creamy and tasty.
Some of these pasta recipes simply need you to layer basic pantry ingredients and press the pressure cook button. So easy that even novice cooks and kids can make yummy meals.
This list includes vegetarian pasta recipes, lasagna, spicy Mexican and Indian flavored pasta, and classic pasta soups.
In each recipe, I explain how to find out the Pressure Cook time for different kinds of pasta, how much liquids to use, and how to prevent the dreaded ‘BURN’. Here is a quick summary of tips for perfect pasta every single time:
- Pressure cook time = Half the time on the pasta package (Minus 1 minute for al dente)
- Add enough broth or water so that most of the dry pasta is under the liquids
- Layer pasta sauce on top of all of the other ingredients. This will prevent BURN
- Add cheeses and cream after the pressure cooking cycle completes
