Gluten-free pasta in the pressure cooker.

Life seems to get busier with every season.  Everyone says “enjoy it the kids will be out of the house before you know it.” Part of enjoying the time is not stressing over dinner.  Easier said than done with so much going on and so many foods to avoid,  I had read that pasta in a pressure cooker was easy.  I was skeptical but it turned out really well.


I browned the ground beef on the stove instead of using the sauté mode of the pressure cooker.  I just find it easier.  You could definitely do this the day before or earlier in the day.

I still feel new to the world of pressure cookers.  I haven’t been wow’d by everything I’ve made and there are a few recipes that I am hoping to improve upon.

Enjoy this fast dinner.
