Instant Pot Soups

Since we still have plenty of cold days ahead of us, I have included some warm and delicious Instant Pot Soups in this February Instant Pot Meal Plan. We start the month with Broccoli Cheese Soup, end the month with Minestrone, and have plenty of soups sprinkled throughout the month.

Some of the other wonderful soups that you’ll find on the meal plan this month are Chicken and Dumplings, Vanilla Jalapeño Corn Chowder, and Bean Soup.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

If you’re looking for a creamy and cheesy comfort soup then you must try my Instant Pot Broccoli Cheese Soup.  This soup is easy to make, uses fresh and wholesome ingredients like broccoli and carrots, and is ready in less than 30 minutes!! The tender broccoli and creamy cheddar flavor are fantastic. This soothing soup will warm your hungry tummy and comfort your soul.

Instant Pot Pastas

Just like soups, pasta dishes can be incredibly warming and soothing when the weather is nasty outside. Plus, they’re so easy to make, hearty and filling, and everyone loves them. That’s why I always include a variety of Instant Pot Pasta Recipes in my meal plans, and this February Instant Pot Meal Plan is no exception.

This month, you’ll find comfort in my recipes for Spaghetti and Meatballs, Cajun Shrimp Alfredo, Tuna Casserole, and Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta.

What’s even better is that this fantastic seafood pasta dish comes together in about 20 minutes. This recipe is perfect for those weeknights when you need something quick and delicious.
