Instant Pot Vegetable Penne

Instant Pot Vegetable Penne is filled with fresh garden vegetables that are sweet and saucy. In this quick pressure cooker, the vegetables will turn out tender and not soggy. You can use pretty much any vegetables you prefer but I recommend not to skimp out on the cherry tomatoes because they are the staple of this IP pasta meal.

This dish is a vegan and plant-based pasta, it’s so good that even a picky carnivore will find themselves finishing their plate.

When you are running out of time and want something healthy, this is the dish for you; all can be done under 20 minutes. Besure to checkout the video to see how user-friendly this IP meal really is.

You can use any pasta or marinara sauce brand you prefer.

Fresh vegetables

All done in less than 20 minutes.

A delicious and light meal for anytime of the week.
