Instant Pot Santa’s Soup
This is a great soup for fueling Mr. and Mrs. Claus this Christmas season. It’s got such great flavor, thanks to the Italian sausage. It comes together quickly…just grab all the ingredients and peel and slice the carrots as the sausage browns. You can use basically whatever pasta you have on hand.
- Ground Italian sausage–I used mild, but you can also use spicy
- Onion–or 2 Tbsp minced dry onion
- Beef broth–or water and Better than Bouillon Beef Base
- Italian seasoning–or you can make your own
- Garlic powder
- Fire roasted tomatoes–these add more flavor but you can also use regular diced tomatoes
- Tomato sauce
- Green bell pepper–or another color of bell pepper
- Ziti–or another type of pasta like penne, macaroni, rotini, etc.
- Parmesan cheese–for topping the soup
The Basic Steps
- Brown the sausage using the saute setting.
- Deglaze the pot with broth.
- Add in the ingredients.
- Pressure cook using the soup button (I like this for soups since it keeps the broth clear).
- Ladle into bowls and serve with parmesan cheese.
- Serve with French bread or homemade crazy bread.
- I used my 6 quart Instant Pot*. You can also make this in an 8 quart pot or halve the recipe in a 3 quart pot.
- If you’d like to make this gluten free then cook gluten free pasta separately and add it into each individual bowl.
- Store leftovers in an airtight container* in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
- Other recipes you can make with ziti are Instant Pot Ziti And Meatballs and Having Company Casserole.
