We try not to have pasta that often but when we do this is definitely one of our favorites 🙂 Instant Pot Tortellini can be made in the Ninja Foodi or on the stovetop with minimal revisions. That creamy tomato basil taste will have your family begging for more as it does in my house.
Instant Pot Creamy Tortellini
Creamy Tortellini is so easy to make it is child's play. I mean our 13-year-old cooks it even when we are not home. She loves to cook and using the Instant Pot we have taught her how to cook healthier meals. Since the Instant Pot has so many built-in safety features we are confident letting her use it without a ton of supervision.
What Ingredients are in Tortellini?
We use tomato sauce from a can most of the time but if you have a few minutes to spare you can try to make your own. I use fresh tomatoes, garlic cloves or garlic powder and onion powder or sauteed onions and let it cook down in the Instant Pot. Easy, but I must admit it is quicker to use a can of tomato paste 🙂Print
