Instant Pot Sausage Rigatoni with Tomato Cream Sauce
A rigatoni pasta mixed with sausage and a rich marinara sauce with just a touch of cream. Easily made all in your Instant Pot. This is an excellent one pot dinner.
plump garlic cloves
diced (about 1 cup)
store bought or homemade pesto
red pepper flakes
more if you like it spicy
heavy whipping cream
Set the Instant Pot to saute. Cook the onions and garlic in the oil until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add the oregano, basil, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, and sausage and cook, crumbling the sausage until it is cooked thru, about 5 minutes.
Turn the saute mode off. If there is excess grease from the sausage, drain some off before moving on.
Add the pasta, water, sauce, pesto and salt. Stir to combine. Try to have all the pasta at least touching the liquid.
Lock the lid in place and turn the pressure valve to seal.
Using pressure mode set the timer for 7 minutes.
When the timer beeps, turn the pot off and do a quick release by turning the pressure valve to vent.
Once all the pressure is released remove the lid. There will be a little liquid left in the pot.
Pour in the heavy cream and stir to combine. Let it rest for a few minutes, it will thicken as it sits.
* It is normal to have a few pieces of pasta stick to the bottom of the pan. It will just require extra scrubbing when you wash the pot!
