Instant Pot Creamy Garlic Chicken Pasta

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

  1. For someone who has hypermesis during her pregnancy, this is a dish I could eat over and over again. Loved it.

  2. Creamy, cheesy, and garlicky. Sauteed chicken thighs in lots of Italian seasoning; removed them, deglazed the pan, sauteed garlic and onions. Put the chicken back in after slicing into bite-sized chunks, with the rest of ingredients, but used Caveletti pasta instead of penne. High pressure for 10 minutes, natural release for 5. The pasta is cooked perfectly and the chicken is moist. Now to foist it on the family…
