This is an amazing dish… and so easy to cook on your truck! Or even at home, if you’re not a truck driver LOL!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 bell peppers of choice (I used 2 red)
  • 1 lb. pasta of choice (I used Penne)
  • 1 24 oz. jar of Marinara Sauce of choice
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Enjoy!

10 Comments on 10 Minute Pasta in the Pressure Cooker

  1. Hi,
    I loved the taste of your 10min pasta but had to finish cooking it in a saucepan. The pasta had burnt on to the bottom of the instant pot causing it to overheat. Have you any ideas as to why this happened? I followed your video exactly.

    • Hi Ray, I recently made it at a lower elevation and found I needed to add more water. Now I generally put nearly a whole bottle (pasta sauce bottle) of water in. This actually increases the flavor, not the opposite.

      I suggest trying again and using almost a full bottle of water (use your pasta sauce bottle) in with the sauce. stir it up well, pop the top on and set it to 13 minutes. Let me know who that goes! – Andrea

  2. Thank you so much for sharing your world with us. I too use a PC and RC for cooking, but not in such a small environment. I have an Instant Pot on my to-get-list when my PC dies since it has a teflon pot and not the stainless steel pot. I also use a rice cooker called VitaClay, which is a clay pot in the rice cooker instead of the teflon ones. I went through several teflon pots easily being scratched during careful use, that I switched to a natural pot. I love it, though I doubt the pot will serve dual purpose as you have with your RC pot. Anyway, I love the blog, and it has been shared on the QVC community chat boards full of people that love their food and PC/RC cooking! Keep up sharing your world with us!

    • Hi Dena!

      First of all, thank you for sharing a link to this site and the channel. I really appreciate that.

      Secondly, I’m going to have to look into that VitaClay you spoke of! Haven’t heard of it and am looking forward to seeing what it is!
      Thanks again,
      Andrea

    thank you for sharing this.
    I pulled out a power pressure cooker I owned (and underuse)to make it.
    I used a pasta made of quinoa, rice and corn. (I had a newman’s pasta sauce on hand. I sprinkled some parmesan and a little Penzy’s pico and salsa spice on it.
    I cooked it at 10 minutes with just over 2 cups of water added. I also melted one slice of provolone cheese on top! Yummo.
    Getting all my cooking recipes lined up for when we hit the road next year as a team!

    oh boy
    I JUST read your article on food combining.
    VERY interesting.
    I will give it a try! (after I enjoy my bowl pasta with a slice of melted provolone on it, LOL)

    • LOL… I really laughed right out loud because I so understand hehehe…. and yet, once you experience the benefits of food combining for yourself, you’ll love it. So worth it. Enjoy!! – Andrea

    Hi what size instant pot are you using? How big is your inverter?

    • Hi Andre,
      I have the six quart 7in1. Or inverter is 1800 watts. The pot draws 900 watts. Hope that helps.

      • Hi Andrea, my wife and I found your youtube channel 3 months ago and have seen almost every video that you and Jai have made. You guys are so much fun to watch, much better than any reality show on the tube. Riding with you in bella and max and seeing the country is so much fun. We hope the two of you are ok as no new videos of late , hope your wrist is better, and can not wait to see the new tiny house. May the good lord bless you and yours in all of your endeavors. Thank you for all of your hard work you are an amazing artist (in all that you do). oh and your music video wow!!! why did we not hear you on the top 20 countdown with Casey Kasem. Keep on trucking you two, and America thanks you for keeping us going.
