Instant Pot: Our Favorite Italian Recipes!

Print
We've saved time, money and calories by skipping the Italian restaurants and cooking at home instead! Here are some of our favorite Italian recipes made in the Instant Pot. Check out the recipes below and click on the name of the dish above the pictures to view the full recipe...

Comfort food that hit the spot! My boys devoured this Creamy Chicken Marsala Pasta asking for seconds lol. For a healthier version, I substituted the heavy cream with half & half. 


Spaghetti Bolognese

We love a good spaghetti night and this recipe was awesome! It's 2 recipes in one that includes the bolognese & one pot spaghetti made all in the IP. 


Instant Pot Slow Cooker Pork Chops alla Pizzaiola! Browned pork chops are cooked in a simple pan sauce of tomatoes, and seasoned with Herbs de Provence with a pinch of red pepper flakes. 


This recipe for Roman Style Chicken was delicious in the Instant Pot! Bone-in chicken is browned and then braised with bell peppers, bacon, garlic, tomatoes and wine.

Pressure cooked beef is cooked in a flavorful broth, cooled and sliced thin, 
then stuffed into soft slider rolls and topped with cheese.



Meatloaf - it's what was for dinner in our IP! I converted a family favorite
for the IP and my boys loved it! 

Chicken Canzanese

Instant Pot Chicken Canzanese (a regional Italian dish) calls for chicken thighs braised in white wine flavored with prosciutto (bacon), rosemary, garlic, sage, red pepper flakes and whole cloves. A totally mouth-watering dinner! 

Chicken Vesuvio

This Chicago classic is made easy and delicious in the Instant Pot!

Pasta Milano is a flavorful pasta dish that includes roasted garlic, sundried tomatoes,
chicken, with a little bacon and cream for some extra goodness!
(To make it healthier, use whole wheat pasta, turkey bacon & half & half.) 

Sorry Olive Garden, we're eating in tonight! This Chicken Scampi has a nice punch 
of garlic, a butter & white wine sauce and a melange of colorful bell peppers 
that make it a great meal perfect for a weeknight or even for guests! Here's the recipe I 
made in the IP using only the SAUTE Mode - no pressure cooking required!

Pork Florentine just blew us away! A velvety sauce spinach cream sauce enrobes 
seasoned pork chops in such a perfect way that you may not ever want
 the chicken version ever again! 

Instant Pot: Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs

What makes a better meatball? When they're Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs! 
Each meatball is stuffed with cheese, perfect as an appetizer or 
served with pasta to to up your game!


Craving Italian night? I've got just the thing! This Tuscan Garlic Chicken 
is an adapted Olive Garden restaurant recipe! A garlicky, cheesy,
wine-kissed sauce pairs deliciously with chicken, bell peppers, spinach & farfalle pasta. 


Instant Pot: Balsamic Braised Sweet Italian Sausage & Onions

Looking for a twist on serving up Italian Sausages? Why not use the IP and
braise them in a balsamic honey reduction? Fancy, but not really... 

This Tortellini Alfredo is like an elegant mac & cheese!
The alfredo sauce is definitely what makes it amazing..
