Instant Pot Tuscan Garlic Chicken Pasta

Howdy (Instant) Pot Heads! 

With this cold winter weather, I was going for complete COMFORT food..and that’s exactly what you’ll get with this Tuscan Garlic Chicken pasta!

This dish is also inspired by one of my favorite restaurants, OLIVE GARDEN!  😋 Now, NOBODY can    Recreate Olive Garden exactly, but thankfully they list all the ingredients online so we could come as close as could be! 👍🏻

Did I mention, the best part is that this meal is FAMILY friendly, as my pickiest eater even enjoyed this meal. #WINNING

Ok, enough of the chit-chat, just cook it already!!

  • Don’t know why it’s got garlic in the name but none in the recipe. Had to make a few substitutions because of a quarantine pantry. Added olives and a mild pepper. Farfale in place of linguine. Still a delicious base recipe to riff off of.

  • Wheres the garlic in the recipe?
