Dump and Start Instant Pot Creamy Ziti

Dump and Start Instant Pot Creamy Ziti is a favorite at my house! I’ll be honest, it totally reminds me of Olive Garden’s Five Cheese Ziti dish. AKA the only thing I ever get while visiting Olive Garden.

I think I can count on one hand the amount of times I’ve actually gone to Olive Garden though.. and most of those occasions were for the end of season formal dinner for the high school tennis team. (I was totally JV. All 3 years. 😉)

Dump and Start Instant Pot Creamy Ziti
Dump and Start Instant Pot Creamy Ziti is saucy, cheesy and delicious. 20 minutes is all you need to make this creamy red sauce pasta dish!

 Course Main Course
 Cook Time 6 minutes
 Total Time 20 minutes
 Servings 4 servings


1 1/2 cup chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream
1 tsp minced garlic dried
salt and pepper to taste
8 oz dry ziti pasta
1 cup red pasta sauce
1 cup parmesan cheese shredded
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese shredded


Add the broth, cream, garlic, salt, pepper and noodles to the instant pot in that order. DO NOT STIR, but make sure all noodles are covered. If you need to move some noodles around, thats okay.
Set your Instant Pot to Manual for 6 minutes. Let it naturally release its pressure for an additional 6 minutes then quick release.
Add the red pasta sauce to the Instant Pot and give it a stir.
SLOWLY add in the cheese while stirring. The cheese will melt and thicken the sauce. The sauce will also thicken as it cools.

Recipe Notes

This is a very saucy dish- If you like yours with less sauce, just cut back on the red pasta sauce at the end.
