Instant Pot Taco Pasta

For the longest time I couldn’t figure out why people made their pasta in the instant pot rather than the old traditional way. I thought just boiling the pasta, frying the meat and adding everything to a big stock pot was easier. Until I made it in the Ninja Foodie myself. Besides only having to clean one pot rather than 2 or 3, the taste is much better believe it or not.

Maybe the flavors marry better in the Instant Pot but you can actually taste everything that you put into that pot. So whether you have an Instant Pot, Ninja Foodie or you just want to make on the stovetop the old fashioned way, you will still get a taco pasta that you can serve for dinner. The Beefy Taco Pasta Instant Pot meal will become one of your family’s favorite sweet and savory instant pot taco pasta meals.
