Ever tried making pasta in a pressure cooker? Since I’ve got a @nutricookworld on my kitchen top, I’m experimenting quite a few recipes everyday and pasta had to be one. Would a pressure cooker cook pasta without turning it too mushy? Turns out, that it absolutely works and a delicious one at that!

Here I’ve made a creamy chicken pasta, sautéing chicken with salt and chili flakes in olive oil and then letting pasta cook in chicken stock (for extra flavor); then mixed with spinach, cheese, and cream. It’s a perfect easy weeknight dinner recipe when I have to run between Ammar’s classes. Also, easy peasy to make in the morning rush when I miss a 5 am alarm for school (true story ?).

Ingredients

  • 250g boneless chicken, cut into cubes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 8 to 10 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tbsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup pasta of your choice
  • Handful bunch of spinach leaves
  • 1/3 cup fresh cream
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella
  • Salt to taste

Directions

  • 1
    Turn Nutricook on saute and give a minute to heat up.
  • 2
    Add olive oil, onion, and garlic. Saute until translucent and add chicken cubes, salt, chili flakes and Italian seasons.
  • 3
    Add the chicken and saute until the chicken is completely cooked.
  • 4
    Add chicken stock and pasta into the pot. Cover the lid and pressure cook in high for 6 to 8 minutes.
  • 5
    Once done, release the pressure by turning the valve to vent position or wait until the pressure is released on its own.
  • 6
    While the Nutricook is on warm, add spinach, cream, and cheese. Stir to mix well.
  • 7
    Serve hot.
