As the days get colder, and my days get busier, there are more days when I need something warm, comforting, and so easy to make. This recipe is it. I struggled with what to name it, as it’s a slight mix between a soup or creamy pasta dish. Either way, it’s absolutely delicious and deserves to be made in your pot. 

I use Ground Italian Sausage in this recipe as it comes full with flavor already so I don’t need to chop an onion or mince garlic. All you need to do is sauté the sausage, add the ingredients, pressure cook, add in spinach and cheese and dinner is served.  Woo hoo!

How to make Instant Pot Ravioli

First, set your pressure cooker to high sauté. Once the display says “HOT,” add in Italian Sausage and brown it by stirring it sausage. Make sure to either use a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula that can stand up to high heat. I use this one.

Once your sausage is brown, add in beef broth and deglaze the bottom of the pot by removing any stuck-on bits. It’s always important to deglaze the pot before pressure cooking.

Turn off the Pressure Cooker and add the following in layers: frozen ravioli…

Cover and cook on high pressure for 3-4 minutes. 3 Minutes if you prefer a firmer ravioli, 4 if you like it softer. 

It’ll take about 15 minutes for your machine to reach pressure and your timer will start. Once your timer is complete, quick release the pressure. 

Open the lid and stir in your spinach and cheeses.

Notes on Instant Pot Ravioli

  • This produces a good bit of liquid, hence why I struggled with whether I should call it a soup or pasta dish. Either way, it’s so darn tasty. 
  • The liquid mixture will not cover the frozen ravioli. It will still cook and still be yummy.
  • I have not used fresh ravioli with this recipe and cannot give adequate suggestions on substitutions for fresh. 
  • This will thicken up in the refrigerator if left in the refrigerator overnight.

What are your thoughts on adding mini meatballs in place of the sausage?

Tanya

Hi Marian, mini meatballs would work but it would just taste a little different. The sausage is already seasoned which adds to the flavor of this dish.

Very easy recipe, and very delicious! I see no need to go to Olive Garden when I can make a dish this! I needed to make a few adjustments: cottage cheese for ricotta, shredded mozzarella for the grated parm, and diced tomatoes with basil/garlic/oregano. I still added half of the seasonings in the recipe to the sausage. My husband and I enjoyed this SO much! Thank you, Tanya, for helping me get the most from my instant pot. YUM! YUM! YUM!

This was so quick and easy. The only thing I changed is I substituted Italian chicken sausages with kale. Removed the casing and sautéed as directed. I used no salt diced tomatoes and no salt beef broth. Probably could use chicken broth as well. Still plenty of flavor without the added salt.

This is ridiculously good! I just got an InstantPot and this was the third recipe I tried. It was way better than the other two (from other sites). I replaced the diced tomatoes with crushed tomatoes to cater to my kids and added extra spinach because, why not?, and this got gobbled up in complete silence...Because everyone was chowing down. Thank you, Tanya!
