I saw Molisana Italian Imported Food on a trip through Broadview Heights, and had to stop to check them out. I'm glad I did - they have an amazing variety of dried pasta. I grabbed my tiny favorite, Ditalini, and the even smaller Tubetti. Small pastas like Ditalini and Orzo are one of my pressure cooker thickening tricks. A sealed pressure cooker doesn't let sauces evaporate and thicken up. If fits the recipe, I add a half-cup of a small pasta after pressure cooking. Pastas soak up a remarkable amount of liquid, giving the sauce a nice, thick body.
Recipes with mini pasta:
- Pressure Cooker Pasta and Bean Soup (Pasta e Fagioli, aka Pasta Fazool)
- Instant Pot Pasta con Ceci (Pasta with Chickpeas)
- Instant Pot Minestrone
