Step 1

Have all ingredients measured and ready to go, this is a quick meal! Add the onion and a few tablespoons of water to the instant pot and turn to normal saute setting. Cook for 5-8 minutes, stirring often until the onions are tender and caramelize (turn warm brown). Add only tiny amounts of water as needed to keep the onion from sticking/burning. Turn off the saute mode.

Step 2

Add the garlic powder, Italian seasoning and salt/pepper and stir around for 30 seconds until fragrant. If it's too dry to stir, add a tiny splash of water. Then add the tomato sauce, water, vinegar, syrup and pasta and stir the mixture really, really well so it is mixed thoroughly.

Step 3

Cook on high pressure by selecting either manual or pressure cook and set the time to 5 minutes. Please note that it takes about 10 minutes before the IP will come to pressure and start the 5 minutes cooking. After the 5 minutes is up, allow the instant pot to naturally pressure release for 5 minutes only. Set the timer. You don't want to let it sit longer than that or it can make the pasta mushy. TIP: What I basically like to do is as soon as the instant pot has reached pressure and it begins the 5 minutes cooking, I set a timer for 10 minutes (for the 5 mins cooking and 5 mins to sit). Do a manual quick release of any remaining pressure, using a pot cover to protect your hand. Make sure to never stand too close to the pot or near the steam vent.

Step 4

Open the lid and it will look quite soupy, this is normal. Stir the pasta around for 1 minute or 2 and it will absorb the remaining liquid perfectly, making it nice and saucy, as pictured. Turn off the IP.

Step 5

Stir in the basil and add to serving bowls. Garnish with sliced olives and my Lemon Parmesan cheese if desired.
