These Instant Pot creamy pasta recipes can feed a crowd and make weeknight dinners comfy for everyone in the family. Pasta is so wonderful for its versatility with meat, seafood, vegetarian and vegan options.
One of the greatest things about pasta is how little it has changed over the centuries. It is still made with the same basic ingredients and preparations that it has been since it’s inception. It’s interesting how the variety of noodle shapes can attribute to a better experience of the ingredients. When we eat pasta, it connects us to a long time tradition of the past. Originate in China, migrating to Italy and then over the seas throughout the world.
A pasta meal is one of the best meals to feed a crowd and keep a happy family. Especially, when it’s creamy and cheesy. Pasta just summons the idea of comfort and satisfaction to a hungry stomach. It’s an easy meal that can be made with tons of variations. You can add meat, seafood, and veggies. Or you can keep it vegetarian or vegan. It’s a great option to bring everyone to the table and create memories.
