Notes

  • Use fresh, minced garlic if possible for best flavor. The jarred, refrigerated kind works too. 
  • If you can't find a blend of Italian seasonings, use a combination of dried basil and oregano. 
  • Butter helps keep the elbow macaroni noodles from sticking together. 
  • Stewed tomatoes are great as a substitute for regular diced tomatoes. 
  • Use the quick release method for the Instant Pot pressure to prevent over-cooking the pasta.
