Rich, flavorful Instant Pot Creamy Garlic Chicken Pasta is a very quick and easy recipe to make weeknight cooking a breeze.
Great for date night or simply a cold winter night.
I am a pasta lover!
It’s my weakness, my guilty pleasure. It’s also my comfort food.
And it’s also my go-to whenever I need something quick and easy.
Whether it’s Alfredo, or spaghetti or something a bit more extravagant, when pasta is on the table, everyone is smiling.
So I’ve been sick with the flu for almost a month (auto immune disorders SUCK!) so we haven’t had a meal that wasn’t frozen, delivered or eaten on the run in that long.
So when I finally felt up to cooking, we whipped up this incredibly delicious Instant Pot Creamy Garlic Parmesan Chicken Pasta.
It was a night my kiddo was off work and we wanted to have dinner together.
He’s not normally the biggest pasta fan, but I am still sick so he obliged and told me to go ahead. He prefers rice. 😉 He was just happy to be getting a home cooked meal again finally. haha!
He hadn’t even left the kitchen with his plate, before he popped a forkful of this incredible dish into his mouth.
He told me that by far, it was his favorite pasta I had ever made. It tasted “professional”, which is the equivalent of restaurant style pasta.
I’ll take it. That’s quite a compliment. I love him. He has the best compliments and has for 25 years and they just get better and better.
I think I’ll keep him. <3
I’m so glad I made this for us. And I’m so glad I used the Instant Pot.
We love making different dishes in our Instant Pot.
It’s definitely our favorite kitchen appliance next to the air fryer.
And pasta in the Instant Pot is easy and fast and incredibly delicious!
Don’t be afraid to play around with this recipe either.
Add diced tomatoes, spinach, chopped asparagus.
Substitute shrimp or salmon for the chicken.
Even steak or pork if you desire.
