Pressure Cooker Turkey Fusilli Pasta


Pressure Cooker Turkey Fusilli Pasta














Turkey and Summer. These are two words we rarely use in the same sentence. In fact, these are two things we rarely see at the same time. Think about it, when was the last time you talked about delicious, slow roasted turkey and hot summer days? If there was a gauge for food and seasons these two would be complete polar opposites.

But why must it be this way? Why can we only enjoy mouth watering turkey during the fall and winter months? Why can't we make Turkey a staple of our everyday meals? Guess what, now we can, and I've got the perfect way to do it. Pasta!

 














Yes, you heard me right, pasta and turkey! I know chicken usually gets all the love when it comes to delicious, hearty pasta meals. But I believe that's just because you haven't tried turkey with your past yet! Believe me, one bite, and you'll be hooked!

We combined our delicious Freeze Dried Turkey with our versatile Tomato Powder, then baked the whole thing in our Fagor Pressure Cooker. The result? Pure meal-time bliss! Best of all, that bliss came in just 6 minutes cook time! Grab your best twirling fork, it's time for Turkey Fusilli Pasta!

Ingredients:
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Garlic Cloves
3 tsp Salt
1 lb Fusilli Pasta
5-6 cups Water
2 Tbsp Capers (for topping after)

Directions:
First, prepare your pressure cooker.

Pressure Cooker











On your Fagor 3 in 1 Pressure Cooker, press the "High" button on the pressure cooker setting until the number 6 appears, then press start. This will set the pressure cooker for 6 minutes.

Place your oil and garlic cloves in the pressure cooker, with the lid off, and allow to cook just until the cloves are golden brown.

Next, add all your ingredients, lock the lid in place, and let cook for the entire time.

Baked Pasta











Once cooking is done, release the pressure, remove the lid, and stir pasta once. Scoop out and top each individual serving with capers.

Pressure Cooker Pasta











This meal is not only super delicious, but extremely easy to make. The flavors of the turkey, pasta, tomato, and seasoning are completely infused in the entire meal, thanks to the pressure cooker. The pasta cooks up perfect, not too soft and not too hard, while the turkey itself adds the perfect amount of flavor and texture. Best of all, you have a dinner for five in under 6 minutes! And you didn't have to use the oven! That means your kitchen stays nice and cool!
