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. 
  • Don’t overcook the pasta
  • If you think pasta is too dry, add 2-3 tbsp Milk. This will depend on the pasta type that you use.
  • The pasta thickens as it cools down. So when reheating, you might have to add milk.
