  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 chicken breasts, diced (about 1/2lb)
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 lb penne pasta
  • 1/2 tsp each salt & pepper
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup sundried tomatoes
  • 2 cups spinach, chopped


  • Add olive oil, chicken, garlic, red onion, chicken broth and pasta to Instant Pot in that order, making sure most of pasta is submerged just below the surface of the water. Do not stir, just press down on pasta slightly.
  • Place lid on Instant Pot and make sure valve is set to seal. Press the pressure cook button and set to high, then cook for 3 minutes. Instant Pot will take about 10-15 minutes to come to pressure then pressure cook the 3 minutes.
  • Do a quick release of the pressure on the Instant Pot by flicking the switch at the top with a spoon. Open the lid when pressure gauge has dropped and the lid opens easily.
  • Stir in heavy cream and parmesan cheese, mixing well. Stir in red pepper, sundried tomatoes and spinach. Place lid back on and let sit 2-3 minutes. Stir well, then serve and enjoy!
