Consider this dish a problem-solving variation on a classic. Ratatouille is a richly-seasoned, but not heavy, French vegetable stew featuring tomatoes, bell peppers, zucchini and more summer vegetables. The trouble is that those veggies are at their best during a season when it’s too hot to stew anything. That’s why this recipe is so ingenious. It puts the Instant Pot® to good use, so your kitchen can stay cool. Not only that, but this recipe turns this classic side into a hearty main dish with the addition of pasta. If you’ve yet to try making a one-pot pasta in your machine, you’re about to be wowed. The Instant Pot® sauté function makes it easy to overcome one of the trickiest aspects of making ratatouille: cooking a variety of vegetables—each with different ideal cook times—perfectly. Onions and peppers get softened with a quick sauté before being combined with softer vegetables and pasta to pressure cook. The end result is a silky-smooth and absolutely delectable vegetarian dish that will satisfy everyone—avowed carnivores included!
