One thing that I have loved making in my instant pot is pasta. It can seriously be done so easily just like with this Instant Pot Tuscan Chicken Pasta.

The actual cook time for this dish is 3 minutes! That cooks the pasta and the chicken. After that, you switch to saute to melt the cheeses and wilt the spinach.

This dish is perfect to serve up this time of year with the red from the sun-dried tomatoes and the green from the spinach. It looks so festive for Christmastime. It is also full of flavor. All you Instant Potters are gonna love this one!
