A one pot, no fuss, no babysitting dinner! Even the uncooked pasta cooks right in the IP, soaking up all that creamy goodness!
This has been my go-to quarantine dinner for most of March. And now April. That and cheese and wine and basically all the carbs.
No, but really, this IP dinner has been so unbelievably convenient, and it doesn’t require too many ingredients. With just a few staples – wine, stock, heavy cream, garlic and Parmesan – you can make homemade alfredo sauce in minutes without any kind of babysitting.
Even the uncooked pasta cooks right in the IP. Just be sure to let it sit for 2-3 minutes once you release the pressure, letting the pasta absorb all that creamy alfredo goodness.
Serve with all the extra Parmesan on top, crusty bread, and the wine you used for the recipe. Let nothing go to waste, especially the wine.
