Creamy Chicken Spaghetti- My newest Instant Pot Pasta dish!

If you are new around here, you probably don’t know.. but all you OG’s know, I love my pasta. I could eat pasta every night and never tire of it, I swear! The very first recipe I ever made in my Instant Pot was my Dump and Start Alfredo. Granted the recipe from then to now has been refined and perfected, but Alfredo was my Instant Pot’s maiden voyage.

I swear, I will never make pasta any other way now! Love how the noodles cook right in the sauce and really soak up all of the flavor.

My absolute favorite part though? I love the fact that I don’t have to sit and babysit a pot of boiling water. No more worrying about it boiling over, a little hand reaching up and touching it, or over cooking your pasta. Nope, nada, zilch.

A good rule of thumb for cooking pasta in your Instant Pot is this: divide the lowest number on the suggested cook time by half, then minus one minute. For recipes on my site, all cook times have been thoroughly tested so you can feel confident just cooking as the instructions state. ?

If you like your spaghetti a bit ‘saucier’ you can add in a splash of milk. I like it how it is written, my husband likes it a bit saucier.
