    This was very good. However DO NOT stir to combine ingredients. Do exactly as video shows. I put in the ingredients and stirred then cooked and it took forever to pressurize then it said burn on it lol. It was not burnt but was stickin to bottom. So i learnt and will NOT mix next time lol. So nummy.

    Very good and super easy! 3 minutes and I did 7 minutes NR, since I was busy and the mosticcioli was perfectly cooked! One pot and no fuss. Will definately make again!

    It was tasty and easy. Took about 10 minutes to get up to pressure in my Nova Plus. Got soupy with 48 oz of sauce but cooled and was perfect to serve and put away. Highly recommend with 48 oz of sauce and watch the video.

    Delicious! But received the “burn” signal nefore the IP even reached pressure. Maybe I should try 5 cups of water? Or not use high pressure? Any suggestions?

    Very easy and great for leftovers. Folks who are getting the “Burn” indicator: have you tried Rao’s or a similar, thinner sauce? The thick stuff can trigger the Burn warning pretty quickly.

    Decided to tweak this a bit, and it turned out great! In addition to the Italian seasoning I added a bit of salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. Used a jar and a half of pasta sauce because we like our pasta saucy. Lol. Also used spaghetti noodles and everything turned out yummy!! Cook times, etc stayed the same. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
