Instant Pot Pasta Recipes

I’ve included lots of easy pasta dishes for busy weeknights. Some of my favorites are my Easy Beef & Bowtie Pasta and my easy and delicious Lasagna. Both are loaded with flavor and so comforting and filling. Also, you won’t want to miss the popular Spaghetti in Pesto Sauce, Zuppa Toscana and Creamy Baked Ziti. Yummy!

International Dishes

This month I added several international dishes you’ll love. There’s Asian, Italian, Indian, Hispanic, and even Irish recipes. You’ll be enjoying plates of Chicken Tikka Masala, African Style Ribs, Shepherd’s Pie, and Chicken Curry to name a few. Try them out and let me know what you think.

More Simple Main Dishes

I hope you try, and love, my Hawaiian Sloppy Joes and Hawaiian Chicken. Both the perfect combination of sweet and savory. And both perfect for summer. I guarantee your family will love them! The Sloppy Joes are easy peasy! The chicken takes a little more prep, but the flavor is spectacular and so worth the extra effort.

Instant Pot Sides

This month’s sides shouldn’t be missed! These Instant Pot sides are all easy and delicious and pair perfectly with so many of the main dishes. You’ll have a choice between Southwest Corn Pudding, Mexican Rice, Quinoa, and more.

Instant Pot Desserts

As for the desserts, they are perfect for summer. The citrusy sweet flavors of the delicious Lemon Mini Bundt Cake are perfectly refreshing for summer. And a warm plate of Bread Pudding with a scoop of ice cream is fabulous. Oh, and don’t forget to try my famous Flan! Everyone raves about it.

Enjoy the rest of the summer and I hope the meal plan gives you one less thing to worry about!
