My Instant Pot Italian Farfalle Soup is a family favorite around the holidays.

Hey Y’all, it is Jennifer from JENRON DESIGNS. Here to share another guest post recipe with Home Pressure Cooking! What am I cooking up today? My Instant Pot Italian Farfalle Soup, which is a family favorite for the holidays, or perfect for a weeknight dinner to pair with a half salad or sandwich!

As we are all busy right now, headed into the holiday months, I am sure that a quick and easy dinner plan would come in handy. This recipe is a gem, a total time saver but still adds a festive holiday touch with a bowl filled with red and green veggies.

Ingredients

I love that it used a whole lot of fresh vegetables this time of year, it is like getting your salad but in a warm yummy soup. I am also using an Italian link sausage, which I remove from the cases, by splitting them open. Again this is a personal preference, you can easily omit the sausage all together for a delicious vegetarian option or use a chicken variety for a pescatarian option.

Start by browning up your sausage on saute’ for 4-6 minutes, (please note that you may need to drain off the majority of the grease from your Instant Pot with a spoon leaving only a tbsp behind). Add in your diced onions, carrots, and tomatoes continue to saute’ for additional 3 minutes, and add in all spices. Fill Instant Pot with stock, make sure to stay below your max fill line. You may have stock in reserve with can be used to thin your soup at the end depending on your Instant Pot size. Drop-in your dry Farella pasta, cover, and seal the lid, cook on Manual/High pressure for 15 minutes.

Once the Instant Pot cooking time is complete, you can carefully quick vent the steam. Then remove the lid, and drop in your fresh spinach to wilt. I personally use spinach in this recipe due to my Kale allergy intolerance, but you can absolutely substitute kale if you wish. It is really a great nutritional option in this soup.

I like to serve my Italian Farfalle Soup topped with shaved Parmesan with homemade garlic cheese toast.

Note: I make my garlic toasts using fresh Focaccia bread, butter, garlic salt, and parmesan cheese in my Ninja Air Fryer for 5 minutes at 350 degrees. This is easy to do while the soup is cooking.
