Instant Pot Ziti with Italian Chicken Sausage

So, I had to look up Italian chicken sausage and it’s actually available in stores, like Target. Have you used it before? My girls love ziti and it works with all the flavors in this recipe. Quick and easy to make any day of the week. Serves 6 Total Time: 28 minutes


12 ounces fully cooked Italian chicken sausage, halved lengthwise and sliced
2 red and/or yellow sweet peppers, coarsely chopped
1 28 ounce can diced tomatoes (undrained)
1 8 ounce can tomato sauce
1/2 cup chicken broth
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning, crushed
8 ounces dried ziti or bow-tie pasta
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
1 cup shredded provolone or mozzarella cheese (4 oz)


In a 6-qt. Instant Pot combine the first 7 ingredients (through Italian seasoning). Sauté, uncovered, 5 minutes to brown sausage. (Personally I’d brown the sausage then add in the remaining 6 ingredients) Stir in pasta. Lock lid in place and make sure steam valve is closed. Set on high pressure for 8 minutes. Let sit 15 minutes to release pressure naturally. Release any remaining pressure. Carefully open lid. Gently stir in basil. Top with cheese. Cover and let stand 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
