This easy Instant Pot Minestrone Soup is a delicious spin on the Italian classic that comes together in less than 20 minutes.
Step 1 Dump all ingredients except for macaroni, basil and parmesan in Instant Pot.
Step 2 Set to manual and pressure cook on high for 4 minutes. Instant Pot will take about 10 minutes to pre-heat and then the 4 minutes to cook.
Step 3 When complete, press cancel and do a quick release of the steam, waiting until the pressure gauge drops back down and the lid is safe to open.
Step 4 – Remove lid, stir soup and add macaroni, then replace lid. Let macaroni soak about 5 minutes (maybe more like 10 depending on the type of pasta you use; mine needed only 5 minutes).
Step 5 Remove lid again and stir. Serve in large bowls and top with fresh basil and parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
Storing and Reheating Store any leftovers in a covered container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat in the microwave on high for about 2-3 minutes, taking the bowl out mid-way to stir.
How to Freeze After you allow it to cool to room temperature, freeze a batch in meal prep containers or glass bowls that have lids. This way, you can then pull them out whenever you want a meal in a hurry! If you plan to reheat the minestrone soup from frozen, be sure that the container is rated safe for freezer to oven use. Microwave it for 6 to 7 minutes on high, being sure to stir it half way through the cook time.
