Prep Time5 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time1 hr 15 mins
 8 oz dry rotini noodles
 2 cups chicken broth
 1 orange bell pepper, chopped

1

Open the lid of your Instant Pot, and add Sonoma Harvest Roasted Garlic Italian Dressing and the chicken broth. Add the noodles into the Pot, making sure that all of the noodles are covered by the liquid. Put the lid on the Instant Pot and turn it to HIGH for 6 minutes. Once the cooking cycle is complete, perform a Quick Release.

2

Pour the noodles and the extra liquid into a bowl, and place in the fridge for about a half an hour.

At the end of the half hour, check on your noodles. They should be cold and should have absorbed the rest of the liquid in the bowl.

4

Add the bell peppers, feta cheese, cherry tomatoes, basil, and salami. Stir and enjoy! If you like a stronger Italian dressing flavor or more liquid in your pasta salad, you can add ½ cup of Sonoma Harvest Roasted Garlic Italian Dressing into the bowl after tasting and stir.
