Instant Pot Tuscan Chicken Pasta (Freezer Meal)

If you haven't made anything in your Instant Pot yet, then this Instant Pot Tuscan Chicken Pasta is the dish to try! It is easy to make, takes 3 minutes to cook, and will make your mouth water.

I think the Instant Pot is the best thing since sliced bread. If you on the fence about it, I’m telling you, it will save you so much time -especially with this Instant Pot Tuscan Chicken Pasta!

I purchased an Instant Pot a couple of years ago on Black Friday. At the time, the pots were about $100+, which just seemed outrageous for an appliance that I didn’t even know how to use.

But on Black Friday, the price dropped as low as $59! You can find the pot I have HERE. I love this one and the 6 quart duo!

One of my favorite things to cook in the Instant Pot is noodles. They cook in 3 minutes and you don’t have to stand over your stove top waiting for your water to boil, or your noodles to cook.

You just dump your water and noodles into the Instant Pot, set your timer and you are good to go! This Tuscan Chicken Pasta has a few more ingredients but it is just as easy!

How to Freeze Instant Pot Tuscan Chicken Pasta:

This is one of my favorite recipes not only to make, but to freeze. Realize you do have to cook everything first before you freeze it.

Once everything is cooked, let it cool just a little. You don’t want it to be hot or it will trap a lot of moisture. Once it is cooled, then you can put it in a container.

I would suggest freezing it in a airtight container, in a foil pan or even in a freezer ziplock bag. All three ways will work just fine.

Because it is already cooked, all you have to do it take it out of the freezer, let it thaw over night, and heat it up. It’s that simple.

Don’t have a instant pot? Cook it on the stove!

The nice thing about this recipe is that it can be made a few different ways. The Instant Pot is by far my favorite since it only takes a few minutes to throw together!

You can also make this recipe on the stove top! Here’s how:

  • Boil your noodles separate in water or chicken broth.
  • Over medium heat on the stove add:
    2 tbsp butter
    8 oz cream cheese
    1/2 cup milk
    1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
    4 oz sun dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
    1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Add in your noodles and spinach until spinach is wilted and everything is well combined.

    This recipe was a good start, but I made the following changes. 1. Used boneless skinless thighs, raw. Started in sautés setting and browned the chicken with a great bbq rub. 2. Then removed the chicken added the trivit, and a cup of chicken stock, added the thighs back in and pressure cooked for 10 min. 3. Removed the chicken and trivit, supplemented the remaining stock to make 2 full cups of liquid. 4. Continued the recipe - but instead of milk used sour cream. These changes will add SO MUCH MORE flavor and creaminess. Enjoy!

    We just made and this was FANTASTIC ... we did not cook chicken before, but rather added chicken, noodles, butter, and broth and cooked for the 3 minutes. Maybe we shouldn't have done that (this was our very 1st IP meal), however chicken came out cooked and tender and noodles cooked perfectly!
