I started making this flavorful Neapolitan dish because of
Lemony Snicket. One of my kids requested it after reading
that the Baudelaire children prepared it in one of the books
in A Series of Unfortunate Events. It couldn’t be simpler in
the Instant Pot®— just add the ingredients and come back
to a pasta dinner! This recipe is vegan but see the tip for
how to add in anchovies, which are traditional. Garnish with
shredded cheese or chopped fresh basil, if you like.
Combine all of the ingredients in the inner cooking pot and stir to coat the pasta.
Lock the lid into place and turn the valve to “sealing.” Select Manual or Pressure Cook and adjust the pressure to High. Set the time for 5 minutes. When cooking ends, carefully turn the valve to “venting” to quick release the pressure. Unlock and remove the lid.
If you eat fish, go ahead and add anchovies for additional flavor. Use 2 oz (1 can) of anchovies packed in oil (drained), adding it to the pot along with the other ingredients. I think their salty, pungent flavor offsets the
sweetness of a typical tomato-based sauce.
