Zippy Ziti


  • 4 cups chicken or garlic broth
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 pound ziti or ziti rigati
  • 4 tablespoons (1⁄2 stick) salted butter
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1⁄2 cup heavy cream or half-and-half
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • Add the broth and Italian seasoning (if using) to the Instant Pot. Stir well. Add the ziti but do not stir. Just smooth it out so it’s mostly submerged. Top with 2 pats of the butter.
  • Secure the lid and move the valve to the sealing position. Hit Cancel followed by Manual or Pressure Cook on High Pressure for 6 Minutes. Quick release when done and give the pot a good stir.
  • Stir in the remaining 2 pats of butter, followed by the Parmesan, garlic powder, cream, and marinara sauce. Let rest for 5 Minutes before serving with more Parmesan for topping and some toasty garlic bread, if desired.
