Instant Pot Italian Sausage & Peppers in Marinara Sauce

This recipe looks like an Italian dish, but if you go to Italy, you’ll never find it! It’s just a mix of 2 Italian ingredients: sausages and pasta.

Anyway, it makes a really nutritious and filling dish, so feel free to try it at home! For a more authentic recipe, try to shred your sausage or use ground beef to prepare a sort of Italian “ragù” (a meat and tomato pasta sauce).
