Description

This Instant Pot Pasta Fagioli Recipe is packed full of meat, pasta, vegetables, and beans for a healthy and hearty soup.


Ingredients

  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 lb lean ground beef or ground turkey
  • 1 Tbs minced garlic
  • 4 c. low sodium beef or chicken broth
  • 1 c. Ditalini pasta
  • 1 large carrot, chopped
  • 1 large zucchini, chopped
  • 1 (15.5oz) can dark kidney beans
  • 1 (15.5oz) can cannellini beans
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 Tbs Italian seasoning
  • 1 (14.5) can diced tomatoes w/ basil & oregano (with liquid)
  • 1 (15oz) can tomato sauce
  • 1 bay leaf
  • salt & pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Press the “Sauté” button on your Instant Pot. After it has preheated, pour in olive oil and add onion, ground beef, and garlic.
  2. Brown meat until cooked, stirring frequently. Press the cancel button and make sure that nothing is stuck to the bottom of the pan.
  3. Add the chicken broth and use a wooden spoon to scrape the bottom of the pan, making sure nothing is stuck to the bottom (this prevents the “Burn” notice).
  4. Add the pasta, carrot, zucchini, beans, rosemary, and Italian seasoning and stir.
  5. Pour in the diced tomatoes and tomato sauce and do NOT stir. Set the bay leaf on top.
  6. Close the lid, make sure your valve is set to “Sealing”, and set the machine to high pressure, setting the time to 3 minutes.
  7. When the cooking cycle is complete, let the pressure naturally release for 3 minutes, then carefully quick release the remaining pressure. For soups and pasta, I always open the vent slowly, just a little bit at a time, and almost pulse the valve to better control the pressure release in the beginning.
  8. Remove the bay leaf, stir, and serve.
