How to Make Quick Pasta Dinner

Step-by-Step

  1. Take out your pressure cooker. Place ingredients in the cooker in order of the list above. You can use frozen meat but I would suggest that the meat is flatten out (Not a large ball).
  2. Turn pressure cooker on high pressure for 22 minutes.
  3. Once done cooking, release the steam (Quick Release). Open lid away from your face due to stem. Take two forks and separate the meat to smaller piece. Mix and enjoy!
