Creamy Vegan Rose Pasta

Lunches in our house have to be quick. During the week I am in and out of meetings and on the weekends, we like to do an outdoor activity in the afternoon. This instant pot recipe was born on a day when I wanted a creamy pasta without the heaviness of dairy. It was a cooler day, and a saucy (almost soupy) pasta sounded perfect. This recipe is perfect for a weekday lunch or dinner. It required minimal prep and takes five minutes to cook in the instant pot. Oh, and the best part, this uses gluten free, high protein pasta.


2 Cups of Banza Rotini Pasta

2 Tbs of Nutritional Yeast

1 Tsp of Chili Flakes

1/2 Tsp of White Pepper

2 C of Tomato Sauce

1 C of Coconut Milk

1.5 C of Vegetable Broth

2 Tbs of Olive Oil

Fresh Basil for Garnish

2 C of Veggies (I used broccoli, bell peppers, and zucchini)


  • Add all the ingredients except the basil to the instant pot.

  • Give everything a stir and pressure cook for 5 minutes at high pressure.

  • Release the pressure immediately after the instant pot is done.

  • Stir in your veggies and put the lid back on for 2-3 minutes.

  • Serve hot with some fresh basil.


* I did get a burn warming but I ignored it and everything cooked properly.

* You could add the veggies with the other ingredients but they will get mushy.
