I love the sausage and basil flavor of this easy pasta recipe. The brown rice pasta cooked perfectly in the pressure cooker! 5 minutes was the perfect amount of time for the pasta to cook. This is a kid friendly recipe that adults will enjoy too! I got the recipe from the recipe book Pressure Cooker Perfection and adjusted it to be gluten free! This recipe is so versatile. You could change up the spices, or use beef instead of sausage!
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lb Italian sausage
1 onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
16 oz bag brown rice macaroni noodles
1 29-ounce can tomato sauce
3 1/2 cups water
2 teaspoons dried basil or 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Heat oil in pressure cooker until hot. Add sausage, onion and green pepper. Brown until sausage is no longer pink. Add tomato sauce, water and pasta. Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes. Use the quick pressure release, then take the lid off. Stir in basil and salt and pepper, to taste. Serve!
