We got an Instant Pot for Christmas and it has changed our life. However, this is a story of Instant Pot rookies who didn’t realize we couldn’t use tomato sauce in an Instant Pot when using the pressure cooker setting 😬. While our chicken parm cooked on the crockpot setting, we had to throw this little number together at the last minute. We always keep ingredients for a “pasta hodgepodge” meal because A. We love pasta and B. It’s a perfect last minute meal. This one in particular has pesto sauce, canned chickpeas, spinach, canned diced tomatoes, olives, ricotta salata, pine nuts and a little parm. Took us about 5 minutes after the pasta was cooked. So delicious and bonus chicken parm for leftovers! Cheers!
