Linguine in the Instant Pot

J. White Harris


This entire recipe can be cooked in the Instant Pot without having to use any other pots or pans. It’s great to be able to cook everything in one pot, while using fewer dishes, and finishing the meal in less time. Normally with a meal like this the linguine is cooked in one pot and the sauce in another and then they are brought together. This recipe uses sauce that already has onion, garlic, peppers, and Italian seasoning in it. When the pasta is cooked with the sauce it really absorbs the sauce and the flavor. The result is some mouth watering, delicious linguine. You’ll want to get seconds.
