  1. What is an Instant Pot: An IP is a multi-cooker, it's like seven different appliances all in one! It does the job of a slow cooker, pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, etc.
  2. I don't have an Instant Pot, can I still make this: Yes! Follow the same instructions by adding the ingredients to a soup pot, and cooking for about 10 to 15 minutes or until the pasta is cooked to your preference.
  3. Nutrition: Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
