Instant Pot beefy penne pasta with fire roasted tomatoes and cheese. A hearty meal that your teens will gobble up!


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

  • 8 ounces penne pasta
  • 1 (15 oz) can fire roasted tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cored and diced

  1. Turn Instant Pot to saute setting. When display says HOT add in the beef and break it up. Add in the onion. Brown for about 5 minutes. Drain off excess grease.
  2. Stir in the garlic powder, salt and pepper. Pour in the broth and scrape bottom of pot so that nothing is sticking. Turn off Instant Pot.
