How to Make Quick Pasta Dinner


  • 1Take 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).
  • 2Turn pressure cooker on high pressure for 22 minutes.
  • 3Once 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!
