  • Start the Instant Pot in sauté mode and add olive oil. Then add the bell peppers and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add the spinach and sundried tomatoes. Cook for another minute.
  • Add the marinara and pesto sauce.
  • Add the frozen cheese tortellini. Add water to the level of the tortellini, about 1 cup. You should be able to see some tortellini over the water and mostly under the water level. Mix well.
  • Change the setting to manual mode for 2 minute. After the instant pot beeps, quick release the pressure manually.
  • Cheese Tortellini is ready to be served warm.


  • There is no need to defrost the cheese tortellini for this recipe.  
  • To get a variation in taste, choose vegetables of your liking.  I have tried adding green peas, broccoli and asparagus.
