When it beeps do a quick release, then carefully lift lid and drain the water out completely. Turn IP off.
Put pasta back into IP or pressure cooker.
Add shredded cheese, spaghetti sauce and sliced pepperoni etc. and stir. Set to saute and wait until sauce bubbles and cheese melts a bit. Serve!
We are busy. Both of us work full time but one thing we really strive for is a dinner where we all sit down and eat together. It has been a great way to connect and honestly it was hard for me to get everything I needed done at work and still cook a dinner until I dove in and really started experimenting with my Instant Pot. It has been a lifesaver!
