Instant Pot Caprese Pasta

Notes –

I use Penne pasta for this one pot meal but you can use any type of pasta you’d like.

You can add vegetable broth instead of water.

Although fresh mozzarella is a must in a Caprese psta, you could substitute shredded mozzarella or any cheese.

I didn’t have the grape tomatoes, so I used Roma tomatoes. Use grape tomatoes for better taste.

I haven’t added any onion or garlic in this recipe because I used pasta sauce which already had the garlic and onions in it.

If you dont have fresh basil, you can use dried one too. Use 1/4 tsp.
