Instant Pot Club Sandwich Pasta—all the flavors from a turkey bacon club sandwich in pasta form. Fresh spinach and tomatoes make this a colorful, fresh dish.
Instant Pot Club Sandwich Pasta
Whenever I go out to lunch I’m always drawn to the club sandwich on the menu. Delicious stacks of toasted bread with turkey, bacon, mayo and tomato. Today I’m taking the fun flavors from the club sandwich and spinning it into a one pot pasta meal.
With loads of spinach and tomatoes this is a fresh summer dish. The recipe makes 6 fairly large servings with only 8 ounces of pasta. Usually I portion 2 ounces of pasta per person. So this is less pasta and more other stuff.
I served this as a warm pasta dish but after eating a few bites out of the fridge this morning I’m thinking you could make this as a cold pasta salad instead. Either way it’s super tasty!
What kind of pasta should I use? I used curly rotini pasta but other options include macaroni, penne, cavatappi, bowtie and rigatoni. For rotini I find that a 3 minute pressure cooking time works best. But for sturdier types of pasta use this formula: minutes on back of box divided by 2 and then subtract 1-2 minutes.
What’s up with the breadcrumbs? By toasting crispy panko breadcrumbs in butter and then tossing them into your dish it just adds a bit of the toasted bread taste plus a bit of texture. It’s a fun and tasty addition. I highly recommed it!

I’d eat this as a cold salad, with a couple of changes. I’d make it with both diced cooked ham & oven roasted turkey & dice romaine lettuce, shredded Colby Jack cheese. Maybe with some finely chopped onion & minced garlic.
This was absolutely delish! FYI I used rotel tomatoes with green chilis since my other cans of tomatoes were way too big. Also, I used chipotle mayo instead of regular mayo and this added a nice zing as well. Love all your recipes!
Whoa those changes sound phenomenal!!!
Hi Karen! I always go for the club sandwich too! Haha. Unless I am really, really, really hankering for a cheeseburger. 🙂
Cheeseburgers are good too! Now I’m hungry!

I haven’t tried this yet, but it sounds yummy ….. just wondering if it couldn’t also be served cold as a salad?
Yes I think that would be so tasty! Refrigerate the pasta after it’s cooked and chill. Then add all other ingredients.
