Instant Pot Makhani Sauce Pasta | How to Make Penne Pasta in Creamy Makhani Sauce

How to Make Penne Pasta in Creamy Makhani Sauce Using Instant Pot
Hello Foodies,
    The creamy, silky-smooth, flavorful, and delicious makhani sauce pasta is undoubtedly a delight to eyes and the taste buds, and it was hit in my home. We both(Dr.K and I) just loved it. So we wanted to try something new, and I love experimenting with different flavors and fusing cuisines. So I tried my hands to make Indo-Italian Fusion Makhani Patsa, and Dr.K loved this combo. It took the Italian pasta to a whole new level. 

As I was thinking, I got this idea of using the leftover makhani sauce that I made in the Instant Pot in 10 Minutes.  So I had some makhani sauce left with me, which I made earlier and thought of a fusion recipe, to combine creamy flavored makhani gravy to the soft-cooked pasta. I just added some milk, cream, and cheddar cheese to the cooked pasta to make it rich and creamy. and it came out damn good. I just had to make a few changes in the basic makhani sauce recipe to bring an Italian flavor. I tried it once and it was super duper hit and made 3 times in a row. I hope you all would like it too!

Some other Instant Pot Pasta Recipes to Try:

Ingredients used to Make Makhani Pasta:
Penne Pasta:
  • I have used penne pasta; you can use macaroni, rotini, or bowties pasta shells too. 
  • You can use whole wheat pasta, gluten-free pasta, or chickpeas pasta too. 

  • The addition of butter or oil(if you are making vegan) will help to reduce foaming.
  • Also, after cooking, the pasta will not be sticky.
  • It is the key ingredient that adds taste to the pasta and to many other dishes too.
Whole Milk and Whipped Cream:
  • It makes pasta good-tasting and creamy consistency. 
  • Addition of skim milk curdles under high heat, so try to add milk and cream any of these works well. 
The Cheese:
  • It helps to make your pasta perfectly creamy, dreamy. 
  • Use your favorites!  
  • Our personal favorite is the cheddar used in this recipe.
  • You can use Mozzarella, Monterey jack, Colby jack, Velveeta, and/or Amul Cheese too.

Tips to Make Pasta in the Instant Pot:
  • If you find your favorite brand’s pasta was slightly under or overdone, keep in mind to add or subtract a minute later. 
  • The addition of butter or oil(if you are making vegan) will help to reduce foaming. 
  • Let the pressure release naturally for at least 5 minutes and then release the remaining pressure.
  • The pasta thickens as it cools down. So when reheating, you might have to add milk.
