Obviously, if you know me you know, I enjoy spending time in the kitchen creating new dishes and making our family favorites. But, I still enjoy finding quicker ways to cook, easier cleanup for me, and tasty meals to serve my family. One of my favorite parts of the Instant Pot is how fast it cooks food, but also how much I love cooking pasta in my Instant Pot. Why do you ask? Because it cooks your pasta to the perfect texture, and it soaks up all the rich flavors that are mixed in, and no draining required. I have been guilty of getting busy and forgetting to look at the pasta, and have overcooked it before. So the Instant Pot does all the work for me, and for that, I can’t complain.
Quick and Easy Instant Pot Cheesy Taco Pasta
With summer on the horizon, I really pull out my Instant Pot quite often to make quick meals that don’t heat up our house. I don’t know about you, but I hate having to cook supper and get our nice and chilled house warmed up from the heat from the stove or oven! Plus I enjoy spending a lot of time outdoors when the weather is nice and warm and sunny. We also use ground beef quite often in our home so I am always on the hunt for new instant pot ground beef recipes to toss into the mix. I can become a creature of habit if I am not careful, so I am always trying to make new things as well as our favorites. So if you are on the hunt for the latest and greatest taco pasta, you just found it! Bon Appetite!
