  • 29 oz tomato sauce
  • 8 basil leaves fresh, or 1 tbsp dried basil
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced
  • 1 c heavy whipping cream
  • 1-2 c tortellini optional - already stuffed, with cheese, in refrigerated section
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 c parmesan cheese to top, optional
  • salt to taste


  • Set to saute mode and add a bit of olive oil, diced onions and garlic. Cook for a few minutes just until onions begin to soften.
  • Turn pot off. Add half of your basil leaves and your can of tomato sauce. Stir.
  • Set to high pressure for 2 minutes, do a quick release.
  • Set Instant Pot to saute again and add in your already stuffed tortellini noodles (add 1-2 cups depending on how many you'd like in your soup).
  • Cook for about 5 minutes stirring intermittently until tortellinis are as tender as you'd like them.
  • Pour in whipping cream and stir. Cook for another 2 minutes or so, just until everything is warmed again and serve topped with additional basil, salt and/ or parmesan cheese if desired.
