An easy, dump and go pasta dish with artichokes, tomatoes, bacon, spinach, garlic and a creamy alfredo sauce. 


  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 (16 oz) package rigatoni, penne or bowtie pasta
  • 1 (14 oz) can whole artichokes, drained and chopped
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 (15 oz) jar Bertolli creamy basil alfredo sauce
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 23 cups chopped spinach
  • Optional: 2 cups chopped, cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup crumbled bacon (packaged or cooked and crumbled)
  • Parmesan cheese, for serving


  1. Add ingredients into pot in order: broth, pasta, artichokes, tomatoes, alfredo, garlic, spinach and chicken (if using). Don’t stir.
  2. Cover Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button to 2 minutes for rigatoni or 4 minutes for penne or bowties. When time is up let pot sit for 5 minutes and then move valve to venting. Remove the lid. 
  3. Stir in the bacon and serve each dish topped with a bit of parmesan cheese.
