1 15 ounce jar alfredo Sauce

2 chicken breast, cut in half crossways (chicken optional)

8 ounces fettuccini noodles, broken in half

2 cups water

2 tablespoons olive oil or butter

23 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon pepper

Freshly grated parmesan parmesan

Parsley, rough chopped


Turn the sauté button on the instant pot and add your olive oil or butter (or 1 tablespoon of each) and the minced garlic and optional red pepper flakes

Cook the garlic for 1 minute or until fragrant, being careful not to burn and immediately turn off the Instant Pot

Add to the pot the water, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and stir

Add the broken fettuccini noodles on top of the water spacing evenly

Add the 15 ounce jar of alfredo sauce evenly over the top and DO NOT STIR

Place the 4 pieces of chicken on top of the sauce and noodles, spacing evenly and season with remaining salt and pepper

Cook on high pressure for 6 minutes and 5 minutes natural release

Immediately remove the lid once pin drops and stir continuously for a couple minutes

Place the chicken back into the instant Pot

Allow the pasta mixture to sit for 5 minutes before serving, allowing the pasta to finish absorbing all the liquids
