  • Add dry pasta, chicken stock, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and garlic powder; stir with a wooden or plastic spoon, scraping the bottom of the pot to loosen any browned bits.

  • Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 5 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.

  • Stir in heavy cream, Romano and Parmesan cheeses. Let the pasta sit in the pot until the sauce is thickened, about 3 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use margarine in place of butter.

My family really enjoyed this dish. Nice flavor and I loved that it could all be made in my Instant Pot. I just added a little extra lemon juice and lemon zest as there's no point in wasting the zest when you're already using fresh Lemons. And we really love lemon. This dish will go into regular rotation! Thanks for posting this recipe! Read More
