Cheesy Taco Pasta | Aimee Geroux – What a fun twist on Taco Tuesday! Top this spicy pasta with sour cream and green onions to make it even yummier.
Three Cheese Macaroni | Garden in the Kitchen – Who doesn’t love mac and cheese? While kids will love it, of course, using a blend of cheeses gives it a more “grown up” taste.
Chicken, Spinach & Artichoke Pasta | I Don’t Have Time For That! – You can never say “I don’t have time to make dinner” again. This takes under 10 minutes total, y ‘all.

Shrimp & Pasta | The Classy Chapter – A perfectly yummy and easy seafood meal that would be great for a romantic night in or just a weeknight when you’re super busy.
Spaghetti and Meatballs | The Simple Parent – This is an essential in my kid’s menu… how about yours?
Pressure Cooker Pasta Recipes
Chicken Noodle Soup | Savory Tooth – Comfort food in a bowl! This is a must on any Instant Pot menu.
Beef Stroganoff | Bacon is Magic – A classic recipe that uses real ingredients but is still made in a fraction of the time. You can’t beat that, can you?
Instant Pot Stuffed Shells | Smashed Peas and Carrots – Jumbo pasta shells are stuffed with spinach and three kinds of cheese. What’s not to love?
Instant Pot Chili Mac | The Typical Mom – You’ll have a complete meal ready in 15 minutes, and it’s a great way to end a chilly (pun intended) day.

Pasta Recipes for the InstaPot
Mac and Cheese | The Classy Chapter – The kids will love this simple version as well as the three cheese version near the top of our list of Instant Pot Pasta Recipes.
Cheesy Chicken Pasta | FoodNService – This is creamy and cheese – a yummy variation on the usual chicken meal.
Easy Lasagna Pasta | Big Bear’s Wife – Lasagna is a classic, can’t miss recipe, and you can make it even faster using your pressure cooker. While finishing for a few minutes in the oven gives the cheese that perfect texture, it’s totally optional and can be made completely in the Instant Pot if you prefer.
Instant Pot Cheeseburger Macaroni | A Mom’s Impression – This is a way healthier version of Hamburger Helper. Very kid-friendly!
Ground Pork and Pasta | Sidewalk Shoes – I hadn’t found many IP recipes for ground pork, so I was so happy to find this one! It goes on sale a few times a year at our local grocery store, and we love to stock up. I’ll be making this for sure.
Pressure Cooker Pasta with Mediterranean Vegetables | The Cook Report – This dish tastes a little “lighter” than the heavier casseroles and pasta dishes featured here and has a hearty helping of vegetables in every serving!
Tasty Pasta Recipes for the Instant Pot
Chili Garlic Instant Pot Noodles | Pinch of Yum – Perfect for when you want to pack a TON of flavor into a dish that you have only minutes to make. This is one of our favorites in our list of Instant Pot Pasta Recipes!
20 Minute Frozen Chicken Pasta | Live Laugh Rowe – This is the BEST when you’re as forgetful as I am. I almost never remember to thaw my chicken breasts, and now I don’t have to!
Turkey and Tomato Penne Pasta | Recipe This – Cherry tomatoes, cheese and pasta make this tasty dish absolute perfection.
Mushroom Pasta | Wondermom Wannabe – Make this for Meatless Monday or any other day of the week when you’re skipping meat. We love mushrooms as a meat “filler” in lots of recipes.
Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta | Simple Hacks Living – This dish is meaty, creamy and cheesy — all the requirements of the ultimate comfort food. It’s one of my favorite pressure cooker pasta recipes!
Sausage Spinach Pasta | Living Sweet Moments – Your kids won’t mind eating their greens when it’s added to this yummy dish.
Pasta Meals for the IP
Lean Instant Pot Spaghetti | Simplistically Living – This dish uses chicken sausage and ground turkey for the meats and whole grain noodles instead of regular pasta to make the dish a little leaner.
