  1. When it says to add remaining ingredients make sure you go on to read the rest of the further, because there is more to add after pressure cooking.

  2. Love all your recipes! Will it work if I substitute “regular” pasta, like ditalini or shells? In my opinion, long pasta, even broken, is messy in soup and not really a comparable substitute for a traditional minestrone.
