Listen, I love me a one pot meal but sometimes I feel like they can be underwhelming and especially Instant Pot Meals- they can be a little “too healthy” or too boring so I set out to make something super comforting while still being a little healthy-ish.
Traditional minestrone soup is made with vegetables, kidney beans and some pasta- it’s one of my favorite soups because it has a lot of texture and so for this version in the Instant pot I wanted to make sure the soup was creamy but had a lots of texture and bite! Since it’s an “a la vodka” pasta – it mimics that creamy delicious vodka sauce we all love over some penne but don’t worry you cannot get drunk off of this and the alcohol in the vodka gets cooked off so you only get the taste and not the buzz, lol!
How to make this on a stove top:
Follow all of the directions and measurements as is and where I instruct to put the Instant Pressure on high pressure cook mode, you will simply just place a lid on the pot and cook until the pasta is al dente (use the directions on the box).
