I am not going to say that I am in love with this recipe because I have been saying that a lot. But, now I’m just going to say that
both of my children loved this recipe.
I loved being able to serve them one of their favorite meals, quickly. And with the inclusion of the broccoli rabe, it makes it a really healthy meal.
Start by adding the sausages (with the casings removed) to the Instant Pot.
Add enough water to cover, so they don’t get dried up. Set the high pressure for 4 minutes, and then a quick release.
Kitchen Items Used:
Don’t Forget to Pin:
- 1 pound penne pasta
- 1 pound Italian sausage (casings removed)
- 3 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 pound broccoli rabe, cut into small pieces (remove the stems)
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 4 cups water
- salt and pepper to taste
Start by removing the casings from the sausage, and then add them to the Instant Pot, saute' until they are cooked and crumbly.
Then rinse out the Instant Pot bow, add the pasta and water.
**Note: The pasta should be covered with water, watch the fill line, and make sure it's slightly over.
Set the manual high pressure for 4 minutes, making sure that the vent is sealed, When the time is up, do a quick release.
Drain the pasta. Return to the Instant Pot.
Add about 1/2 cup of water, add the broccoli rabe and press the saute' button. I added the lid, so that the steam from the water and pasta, would cook the broccoli rabe. It took about 4 minutes, but the broccoli was softened.
Mix in the cheese and sausage.
Plate, serve and enjoy!
