This Instant pot pasta dish is even easier to make than box cheesy pasta! (And even tastier!)
I am slightly disappointed I am not posting pictures of my new kitchen this evening, but there is one more component to our remodel on its way, and I want to wait until it is installed before I take pictures.
I am totally in love with the transformation. We worked on the kitchen a ton over the last week, at times tiling or painting until after midnight.
As you can imagine, there was not a lot of space or time to prepare food while we were working on the remodel. Our cabinets were emptied out onto almost every available space. Whatever remaining space there was, held tools and materials and painting supplies.
So I was incredibly thankful that I could make simple meals in my Instant Pot, plugged in on the dining room floor!
One day for lunch I was able to easily make honey carrot soup for an outdoor picnic. And when I was seriously craving a snack after dinner one night, but didn’t have any other easy options, I came up with a quick and easy single serve garlic butter pasta.
The next day I made a small dish for a snack for my son. And since then my younger son has been begging me to make him some as well.
Hopefully I will have kitchen pictures to share by the end of the week. In the meantime, you can get a glimpse of the finished work by watching my Facebook Live cooking videos— tomorrow I’m showing you how to make chicken broth in the Instant Pot.
