    Gluten Free Pressure Cooker Pasta with Meat Sauce

    Posted by  ·  May 11, 2017

    Do you need a quick and easy recipe for busy weeknight meals? You will love this Gluten Free Pressure Cooker Pasta with Meat Sauce.  It is delicious and nobody would ever guess it is gluten and dairy free. If you can have dairy, parmesan is a great topping! I have made it with Barilla and Ronzoni  brand pasta with great results. If you are looking for more Instant Pot recipes to make dinner time a breeze we have you covered.  We use our pressure cooker (Instant Pot brand) at least four times a week. It has made a huge difference in our meal planning. I alway have this Instant Pot Spaghetti Sauce on hand.  I either make it, diving the ingredients into two freezer bags and freeze (add 10 mins to the cooking time if cooking from frozen) or I divide the recipe making one to eat now and one to freeze. It is a great pressure cooker recipe.

    • 2 cups chicken broth or water
    • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning

    1. Turn Instant Pot to saute. Cook meat, onions and garlic. Don't let garlic burn. Remove any extra fat. Add remaining ingredients to the meat mixture. Cover and cook on high pressure for 8 minutes. When finished cooking quick release pressure. Open Instant Pot and stir pasta.  Sauce will thicken slightly.

    Recipe Notes
