Tips For Cooking Noodles In The Instant Pot

Cooking pasta in the Instant Pot is super easy. The noodles turn out al dente and not soggy or overcooked. Here’s a couple of tips to make sure they turn out great every time – 

  • If you are using spaghetti or fettuccini, break the pasta in half before placing it into the Instant Pot. I know breaking pasta is a “no-no” but it’s a must in this instance
  • Use a wooden spoon to push the pasta down into the chicken stock so that all of the noodles are covered. This will make sure that all of the pasta cooks without burning.
  • Add the liquid, garlic and seasoning to the pot and stir to mix before adding the pasta.  
  • This recipe works with all types of pasta so have fun and experiment!
