INGREDIENTS LIST FOR THE INSTANT POT SAUSAGE PASTA IN CREAM CHEESE TOMATO SAUCE

8oz (225g) dried rotini or fusilli pasta
1 lb (450g) Italian Sausage
1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon garlic powder (or 3 garlic cloves, minced)
1 (8 oz – 225g) can ground tomato
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Salt and fresh cracked black pepper

1/2 cup cream cheese
1 cup (250ml) chicken broth
2 cups heavy cream
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
Fresh chopped parsley, for garnish



















DIRECTIONS

1. Turn the Instant Pot to saute mode. Allow to warm up and add olive oil and onions, and cook until slightly soft.

2. Add sausage, break up with a spatula, and cook until it’s no longer pink, stirring frequently to make sure it doesn’t stick to the insert. Press CANCEL to stop the saute mode.

3. Add pasta over sausage, then add the ground tomatoes, diced tomatoes, garlic powder, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and cream cheese and chicken broth. Do not stir, but press lightly with a spoon to ensure pasta is completely covered with sauce and water.

4. Place a lid on the Instant Pot, close, and make sure the vent is set to the SEALING position. Hit PRESSURE COOK for 5 minutes. When pressure cooking is done, do a quick release, then carefully remove the lid and hit CANCEl to turn the Instant Pot off.

5. Stir in heavy cream and Parmesan cheese, garnish with fresh chopped parsley and serve immediately. Enjoy!
