  • Pour 2 Tbsp of Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil into the Instant Pot, and preheat on the Sauté setting for 5 minutes.

  • Next, pour in the pasta and Primal Kitchen Dreamy Italian Dressing
  • Add up to 1/2 cup of water NOTE: You want the pasta to be submerged in sauce; otherwise it'll get crunchy and not tender. The size of your Instant Pot will determine how much water you may need.
