Cacio e pepe pasta is a 4 ingredient recipe that is perfect for busy weeknight dinners. This easy pasta recipe uses pantry staples to create a  delicious, authentic Italian meal right in your pressure cooker.

Spaghetti Low-Sodium Broth Pecorino Romano Cheese Butter Parmesan Cheese Cracked Black Pepper Powder


Pour the broth into the Instant Pot. Break the spaghetti strands in half and spread them in two layers using a crisscross pattern. Press down to make sure all the noodles get some water on them.

They don't need to stay in the water, but just get all of them wet. Add butter. Do not stir from this point on. Close the lid and turn the vent to sealing position.

Pressure cook on high for 5 minutes. Once done, let the pot release naturally and then release the remaining pressure with the manual pressure release.

Use tongs to stir the spaghetti well, and pick apart any stuck pieces. Stir in the rest of the butter and cheese. The sauce will start to thicken.

Stir in the freshly cracked black pepper. Garnish with some more grated cheese and serve hot. Enjoy!
