Instructions

Instant Pot Instructions:

  • Select the SAUTE setting on Instant Pot. Heat oil, add onion, carrot and garlic. Saute till the onions are soft and translucent.
  • Switch off the SAUTE setting. Add the diced tomatoes, all the seasonings like dried oregano, basil, thyme, salt, black pepper and vegetable broth. Stir everything well.
  • Close the lid securely, and turn the vent to "SEALING". Select the PRESSURE COOK/MANUAL (High Pressure) setting and set the cooking time to 1 minute.
  • When the instant pot beeps, allow the pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes, then release any remaining pressure before removing the lid.
  • Select the SAUTE setting, and add in the fresh tortellini. Stir and cook for 3-5 minutes or until they float to the top.
  • Stir in the baby spinach after turning off the heat. The spinach will wilt with help of residual heat.
  • Finally, add the heavy cream, and give a quick mix. Adjust the seasoning at this stage.
  • Sprinkle some grated parmesan cheese (optional) if desired and serve warm.
