Instant Pot Creamy Italian Chicken Pasta

This Instant Pot Creamy Italian Chicken Pasta is a creamy delicious pasta dream come true.  My favorite dishes to make in my instant pot usually involve pasta.  I have a big slice of Italian in my heritage but was never really raised around of all the delicious dishes.  Once I started cooking, the Italian in me would start shining in my cooking.  I love to cook Italian dishes and it is definitely my families favorites as well.  

Living in New Jersey and very close to Manhattan, I have had some of the most delicious authentic Italian meals.  I like to think I am some sort of an Italian cuisine expert.  🙂  I love the combination of roasted peppers and spinach.  This is a great way to sneak some veggies into those kiddos too! 

Instant Pot Creamy Italian Chicken Pasta

This delicious recipe needs only some delicious crusty bread and a side salad. Serve this with a delicious Instant Pot Creme Brulee or Instant Pot Creamy Orange Cheesecake and you have one delicious dinner.
