  • 1 pound Linguine noodles
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 15 - 16 ounce tomato sauce
  • 1 large red bell pepper
  • 1 package sun-dried tomatoes in oil with basil and thyme
  • 1 large shallot peeled and sliced thin
  • 2 cups Parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1/4 cup half and half or milk if you prefer
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon ground oregano
  • 1 teaspoon sweet basil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar


  • Place the Linguine noodles in the bottom of the Instant Pot, and add 1/2 cup of water, and 1 Tablespoon of olive oil, and stir. Place the lid on the Instant Pot until it beeps and locks. Set the pressure valve to "SEALING" and press the 'MANUAL' button, and set the time to 6 minutes. Let the Instant pot automatically build and release the pressure.
  • While the Pasta is cooking, make the sauce: Wash the red bell pepper, and cut it in thirds. Place it skin side up on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush a little olive oil on the pepper, and place it in the oven under the broiler until it's charred and bubbles. (about 8 - 10 minutes). Remove from oven and set aside. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, add the Tomato sauce, sun-dried tomatoes, shallot, garlic salt, seasoned salt, seasoned pepper, Italian seasoning, oregano, basil, garlic, and brown sugar. Cook sauce until it begins to boil, and turn heat to low, to simmer for 15 minutes. Check red peppers, and if they have cooled enough, slice or chop them, and set aside. When the sauce has simmered for 15 minutes, add the half and half, stir and let simmer for 5 minutes, turn off heat, cover, and let the sauce rest.
  • The pasta should be done; Check the pressure valve on the Instant Pot, and if it's down, turn the pressure valve to release, and make sure all pressure has been released, then, open the lid. Stir the pasta, and with a pasta server, or strainer, remove the pasta to a bowl. Pour out any excess water, and place the pasta back in the stainless steel liner of the Instant Pot. Carefully, pour the tomato sauce over the pasta, and toss the pasta in the sauce. Add the sliced, or chopped red bell pepper, and the Parmesan cheese, and toss all together. Serve on plates, or in Pasta Bowls. Enjoy


You can serve the Pasta topped with crumbled bacon, sliced chicken, or pepperoni.
