You are welcome to double this pressure cooker pasta recipe. Just make sure your liquid and contents don’t go over the max fill line on side of the pot.

Do You Eat Cold or Hot

Either works for this recipe. I prefer to eat my pasta warm, but I don’t see why it would be bad to eat cold if you want to make it ahead of time. 

Best Way To Reheat Pasta

If you want a quick reheat simply use your microwave. Place pasta in place and make it in the shape of a donut. Leave a hole in the center. This helps the pasta to reheat evenly. Then heat till warmed.

  1. What kind of protein would go good with this? How can I cook that protein in the same pot? I was thinking maybe shrimp? I’m open to any meats that would go good I want to try this but need protein with it.

    1. shrimp, chicken or a beef would be great. The chicken or beef, add in the step #1 and start to saute for a few minutes to start cooking. Than continue to step #2

    1. I ended up doubling the recipe and needed 4 cups of broth to cover the noodles. They came out rather tangy tasting. I wonder if that was because of the olive oil?

  2. This was good, but not quite as flavorful as I expected based on the ingredients. It needed a bit more salt, and I added a pinch of parmesan cheese on top to bring out the umami flavors. Also, my spaghetti was a little underdone at 4 minutes, and ended up a bit dry because it sucked up all the moisture that was left.
