Ingredients

  • 2 cups spaghetti sauce
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 8 oz sausage crumbles cooked
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 can (2.25 oz) sliced olives
  • 20-30 pepperoni slices divided
  • 1 lb pasta (we use rigatoni)
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 8 oz mozzarella cheese shredded

Instructions

  • Add the first 8 ingredients to the pot (everything but the cheese.) Set aside some pepperoni slices for later. Stir together to mix well.
  • Close the lid, set the steam release valve to closed and press Steam (high pressure.) Adjust time down to 5 minutes. Press Start/Stop.
  • When cooking cycle has ended, do a quick pressure release. Stir in most of the cheese, then add the rest to the top, along with the pepperoni slices that had been set aside. Close the lid for a couple minutes to melt the cheese.

  • Open back up and press Start/Stop to turn off the Keep Warm setting. Serve with garlic bread and salad for a quick and easy meal!

Notes

  • If you are using vegetables like onions, bell peppers, jalapenos, etc. and you like them soft, you can cook them in a little butter or olive oil on the Brown/Saute setting before adding the other ingredients. 
  • If you can't find precooked sausage crumbles in the deli section, you can buy a pound of Italian sausage and cook it on Brown/Saute before adding the other ingredients.
