Instant Pot Ziti - Della Devoted

Instant Pot Ziti


I love Italian food and I love Pasta! Who doesn't love pasta? I love getting the Ziti from Olive Garden, but I very seldom get to get it. The closest Olive Garden to us is over an hour away, so I don't get to go as often as I would like. However, I can make my own Ziti at home and it is actually pretty tasty. It's super easy too if you own an Instant Pot. You can also make it on the stove and it's just as delicious. My husband and I prefer this Ziti over Spaghetti any day, and I have a feeling you will too.



What you will need:

1 lb Hamburger Meat
1-16oz box of uncooked Ziti
1-24oz jar of Chunky Tomato, Garlic and Onion Pasta Sauce (You can use any flavor you want, our family just prefers this)
1-6oz can Tomato Paste
1-14.5oz can Petite Diced Tomatoes
1 tsp Minced Garlic
1/2 tsp Oregano Leaves
1/2 Parsley Flakes
3 cups Water
1 cup of  shredded cheese (we used cheddar, but you can use whatever kind you prefer)



Method:

1) First, turn the Instant Pot to Saute then brown the Hamburger Meat until well done.
2) Next, add the uncooked Ziti, diced tomatoes, pasta sauce, tomato paste and seasonings.
3) Then pour 3 cups of water over top of all ingredients. Make sure water is completely covering the uncooked Ziti. You can add a little more water if you need to. Be sure to stir everything together once water is added.
4) Turn the Instant Pot to Manual Mode and cook on high for 7 minutes. Then use quick release when the instant pot is finished cooking.
5) Remove lid and add cheese so that it can melt quickly


 Allow to cool and enjoy


It is so delicious! This will be your favorite go to Ziti recipe from now on. I love how quickly it comes together yet it never loses it's flavor. Who doesn't love a good dinner in a flash?
