Pressure Cooker Rigatoni with Sausage & Peas
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
This was very good! I added Italian seasoning because I didn’t think the basil was enough. I forgot the peas and used Parmesan cheese. I also used half of the cream. I will definitely make this again!
This is an amazingly good and easy recipe I did in my Instant Pot. The change-ups I made were adding 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning for more flavor. I only used 1/4 cup cream (actually used non-dairy creamer) and stirred in 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese after the cooking. When it comes to pasta dishes, hubby is very particular...he loved this!
This sounded like a great recipe so I decided to make it this past weekend. I added a small finely chopped onion along with the minced garlic and used goat cheese, not feta (I didn't sprinkle it on top as the recipe suggested - what I actually did was use a little bit more than the recipe called for and stirred it into the pasta at the end, letting it melt throughout). I also substituted a half teaspoon of Cajun seasoning for the red pepper flakes. As the previous reviewer mentioned, there was a lot more liquid than the photograph of the finished recipe would suggest, which alarmed me at first. As the dish cooled, the sauce thickened a bit. After refrigerating the leftovers overnight, the sauce was no longer thin and it reheated quite nicely in the microwave. In fact, as with many Italian dishes, the flavors blended together and it actually tasted better the next day. This would be a great dish to make in advance and then pull out the next day to reheat and serve, but I would suggest stirring in a couple of tablespoons of flour to thicken the liquid if you would like to eat it right after preparing. I ended up enjoying this recipe and would definitely make it again.
I was looking forward to this but was disappointed. I made as stated (husband picked up the tomatoes and got fire roasted so the flavor of the sausage didn't come through). I was much more liquid-y than the picture. The best part was the melted feta as it was slightly gooey.
