I recently got a pressure cooker/Instant Pot/Quick Cooker/other name. Does anyone have good recipes for it? I've made a couple and I am hooked! No leaving a crockpot on when not at home and no crazy hot oven heating up the house.

One of my faves so far: Creamy Tuscan Chicken Pasta

  • 1 (32 oz) carton low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup oil packed sun dried tomatoes with herbs, drained and dab excess oil off with paper towels, chopped
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 12 oz uncooked campanelle pasta
  • 5 oz fresh baby spinach
  • 1 (8 oz) pkg. light cream cheese, cut into cubes and softened
  • 1 cup finely shredded parmesan cheese (use fresh shredded)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • Instructions
  • 1 In your quick cooker insert stir together broth, tomatoes, Italian seasoning, garlic, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper (season with more at the end if needed).
  • 2 Stir in chicken and pasta (and try to submerge down into broth).
  • 3 Secure the lid in place, be sure pressure button is not pressed in. Select the "custom" setting and set to 5 minutes.
  • 4 After the time is up select "cancel" then press the pressure button to release pressure.
  • 5 Once it stops sputtering open lid and immediately stir noodles to separate then stir in spinach, light cream cheese and parmesan.
  • 6 Toss well. Let rest for about 5 - 10 minutes to thicken (it will seem like soup at first but as it rests and cools it will thicken right up).
  • 7 Toss in basil just before serving and serve warm (you can also garnish with a few diced sun dried tomatoes if desired). (I didn’t do this)
