I’m discovering that I really like to make pasta dishes in my electric pressure cooker. Besides being super fast, I also have just one pan to clean up! No pasta pot and strainer and skillet! I love it! Here is a quick pasta dish you can throw together in no time at all! Just 4 easy ingredients and dinner is ready! Feel free to use whatever pasta you prefer. And substitute other frozen veggies such as broccoli for the peas if you’d like. Just make sure to add a couple minutes of cooking time at the end so the broccoli is cooked through!
2 cups diced chicken (cooked or uncooked)
1 12 oz box of dried pasta
3 cups water
Salt to taste
1 16 oz jar Alfredo sauce
1 12 oz bag of frozen peas
If using uncooked chicken, place in the bottom of the cooker and cook on “brown” mode for a few minutes until almost done. For this step I leave the lid off and cook the chicken in the bottom of the pot just like I was cooking it in a skillet on the stove. Next, pour in the box of noodles and water then add salt to taste. Give everything a quick stir then close and lock the lid and cook for 8 minutes. When the cooking time is up do a quick pressure release and remove lid. Drain any excess water if necessary then stir in the jar of Alfredo sauce and bag of peas. If using cooked chicken, go ahead and add it at this stage. Replace lid and set to low temp cooking for 5 minutes or until peas are cooked and sauce is warmed through. Stir together and serve!
