Notes

If you are looking to make this recipe oil free, skip the oil and saute in water instead.
If you use Gluten free Pasta, cooking times will be less. General rule is use half the time mentioned on the box to cook the pasta.
Use dairy free vegan cheese or nutritional yeast for garnish to make it Vegan recipe.
Total cooking time involves the time InstantPot comes to presure and the time to release the presure after it's done cooking.
