How To Make This Instant Pot Italian Wedding Soup:
Begin by turning your Instant Pot on and pressing the SAUTE button.
Add the olive oil into the bottom of the inner pot and allow it to heat up.
Then, add in the sliced carrots, sliced celery, and diced onion and saute them for 4-5 minutes or until the vegetables become tender.
Once the vegetables are tender, add in the minced garlic and allow it all to saute for another 30 seconds.
Now, add in the dried parsley, dried basil, salt, pepper, dried dill, and chicken broth to the inner pot and mix everything together.
Next, add the frozen meatballs into the Instant Pot and press the CANCEL button to turn off the saute.
Place the lid on top of the Instant Pot and press the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK button and set the timer for 7 minutes. Make sure to turn the valve on top to the SEALING position.
Once the timer goes off, turn the valve to the VENTING position to do a quick release of the pressure inside the Instant Pot.
Now, take the lid off and add the pasta and chopped baby spinach to the pot, and place the lid back on the Instant Pot and turn the valve back to the SEALING position.
Press the MANUAL or PRESSURE cook button again and set the timer for another 3 minutes.
When the timer goes off this time, do another quick release of the pressure and turn the valve to the VENTING position.
Once all the pressure is out, remove the lid from the Instant pot and use a ladle to serve the Italian soup, and top it with Parmesan cheese!
