Good ole’ comfort food here for that anytime of the year. I actually made this comforting soup specifically for our son who just had pretty intense foot surgery. Poor guy. He is thankfully on the mend now. Today I am sharing how to make chicken noodle soup with pastina. The pasta is not actually labeled as pastina, but that is the name we grew up with calling these tasty little pasta bites. They are also fantastic just with a little butter and grated cheese on top. Kids really dig them!

Chicken soup with Pastina in the Instant pot

This comforting home made chicken soup was also on the healthy scale.  I am still in awe over the fact it only took me 6 minutes to make it. It tasted like it would have taken days to achieve all those savory flavors and herbs.

Chicken soup with Pastina in the Instant pot

6 Minute Pressure Cooker Chicken Pastina Soup


  • 4 Lbs Rotisserie Chicken Cooked
  • 1/2 Can Cream of Chicken Herb Soup
  • 1/2 Can Cream of Celery Soup
  • 1 Box Chicken Stock 32oz
  • 1 1/2 Cups Water
  • 1 Bag Baby Mixed Colored Carrots Small Bag
  • 1 Bunch Green Scallions
  • 2 Cups Pastina
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste


  • First I turned on my pressure cooker to saute mode and added in the box of chicken stock.
  • While that started simmering I added my chicken that I pre-shredded, the carrots, the scallions, and half a can of each soup flavor.
  • Add water. Mix all the ingredients well.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Close lid, hit seal. When it beeps do a quick release, which in addition will take another few minutes.
  • Add 2 cups of pastina and mix well into the soup. Set your pot to manual for 6 minutes.
  • Soup is on. Add a sprig or two of fresh parsley if desired.
  • This soup needs to cool off a bit before you dig in. It's so delicious! Enjoy.
