Why we love making Instant Pot Pasta

Typically, the Whisking Kiddos are always in the mood for some delicious salted and buttered noodles. This easy Instant pot pasta recipe frees up the stove top and I love that there is no boiling water necessary. Depending on the day we add alfredo sauce, marinara sauce, chicken, roasted veggies or other delicious toppings.
