Creamy, saucy, slightly spicy with the perfect finish of fresh basil herbal notes is what you will have when following this Feta Pasta recipe using the Instant Pot. Like most of you I have seen the oven baked and other forms of Feta Pasta on different food channels. I was going through my kitchen and noticed I had half a block of my favorite Greek Feta cheese and decided to take it to the laboratory and generate a product for family consumption. The aromas when cooking are some of my favorite experiences and sautéed grape tomatoes with garlic are among my favorite. This recipe is in a bit reverse cycle but yields very similar results and can be made anywhere you can plug your IP up, so it is ever more versatile.
Slowly appreciate the photos below and review the instructions to see just how to unlock the Feta Pasta recipe using your Instant Pot. Filling and simple this recipe is easy to follow and will be enjoyed by all. I enjoy my saucy pasta with slightly toasted slices of my local bakers french bread and suggest you serve yours with your favorite also. Choose a good quality for your feta to enhance the flavor profile but feel free to do as I did and use what you have on hand. This recipe features simple ingredients but I do highly recommend adding fresh basil. If you don’t already, I suggest you start growing your own basil this season as it is a must in many eat foodlicious dishes.
