How to cook:
  1. Turn on Instant pot
  2. Turn Instant Pot (IP) to the "Saute" mode and allow it to heat until it reads "HOT"!
  3. Sauté mushrooms
  4. Add butter or olive oil to IP and allow to melt, then toss in chopped mushrooms and saute until soft, a few minutes. Turn off IP.
  5. Pour in broth (or water), scraping the bottom of the pan to release any bits, this is called deglazing the pan.
  6. Add seasonings, cream and Prosecco
  7. Add garlic, pepper, onion powder, heavy cream and Prosecco, give it all a quick stir.
  8. Pour in bow tie pasta, pressing down lightly with wooden spoon until evenly distributed and most of it is under liquid.
  9. Cook
  10. Close IP lid, lock and secure (close vent) and set to Manual/Pressure Cook for 4 minutes. It takes about 5 minutes to come to pressure, allow for a 4-5 minute natural release (longer if at altitude), then release the rest of the steam, carefully.
  11. Sundried Tomatoes and Parmesan
  12. Stir in sundried tomatoes and Parmesan cheese, the sauce will thicken as it cools. If desired, sprinkle with some chopped Italian parsley or fresh basil.
  13. Store up to 7 days
  14. I do not recommend freezing a cream based recipe like this, but this does store well in the fridge up to 7 days. See below for reheating instructions.
  15. This recipe may be doubled, if making in the instant pot, if too watery when you release the pressure, simply turn IP to simmer and stir until desired thickness.
