Instant Pot Italian Sausage Penne
mild Italian sausage
frozen chopped onions and pepper
(28-32 oz) jar
(16 oz) box
Set Instant Pot to Sauté mode and brown sausage with garlic, onions and peppers, breaking it up as it cooks.
Once cooked, add jar of pasta sauce, one jar-full of water, basil, Italian seasoning, penne pasta, and a few handfuls of baby spinach to the pot.
Close the lid, set the vent to “sealing,” and set the Instant Pot to Manual for 5 minutes. It will likely take around 10 minutes to reach pressure.
Once the timer goes off, allow a 9-minute natural pressure release. Once the pot reads L0:09, quick release the rest of the pressure.
Stir the contents of the pot, mix in half of the shredded mozzarella.
Top with the remaining mozzarella, and enjoy!
