Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup of bacon, diced (about 2 strips cut up

  • 1

    large shallot, diced –

  • 1 1/2

    cups of water

  • 3 1/2

    cups of marinara sauce

  • 1/4

    cup of Vodka

  • 14.5 oz can of either diced or stewed tomatoes (go with stewed if you want it chunkier), with the juices

  • 3

    cups (or 1 box, really) of mezze penne (I find this pasta works best – it’s like a mini penne and rigatoni combined)

  • 2

    tsp crushed garlic

  • 2

    tbsp of butter (1/4 stick)

  • 1/2

    cup of heavy cream

  • 1/4

    cup of grated Parmesan cheese

  • 2

    oz of a brick of cream cheese (about 1/4 of the brick)

  • Salt & pepper to taste (if you desire)

  • Fresh oregano and more Parmesan cheese for topping

Directions

On your Instant Pot, Hit “Sauté” and “Adjust” so it’s on the Normal setting Once it reads “Hot,” add the diced bacon. Stir often as it will want to stick to the pot – and it’s okay if it does a little. The cooking bacon will create a little of its own grease. Let it cook for about 1 minute. Add the shallots and stir with the bacon often. About 2 minutes. We do not want the bacon to be crispy – just enough heat so it’s only lightly cooked and still soft. After about 2 minutes, the bottom of the pot will likely begin to turn a little brown. This is a good thing and will mean we are ready for the next step. Hit the “Cancel/Keep Warm” button so the display reads “Off.” Add the water. Use a mixing spoon and give the bottom of the pot a good scraping. Add the can of stewed or diced tomatoes, pasta, marinara sauce, vodka, garlic and butter (in that order). Mix VERY well Secure Lid and hit “Manual” or “Pressure Cook” High Pressure for 7 minutes. Quick release Stir very well for a minute (scrape the bottom of the pan just in case a few noodles may have straggled and clung to the bottom – this is normal but won’t be an issue). Add the heavy cream, parmesan and cream cheese (in that order and mix in between each item is added). When all is in the pot, mix for a good 2 minutes so everything is melted and blended in nicely. Add salt & pepper to taste (I didn’t as I think the marinara sauce and canned tomatoes already provide plenty of that – but everyone’s taste buds are different!) Serve in a bowl and top with fresh shredded (or grated) Parmesan and a sprinkle of fresh, chopped oregano if you desire.
