  • 1 tablespoon Extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup Yellow onion - one small yellow onion
  • 4 cloves Garlic - diced small
  • 1 ½ cup Zucchini - one medium sized zuke
  • 1 cup Carrot, diced - it can be a little more
  • 1 cup Uncooked shell pasta - you can substitute other pastas as well
  • 24 ounces Tomato puree - or cruched tomatoes
  • 14 ounces Diced Tomatoes
  • 6 cups Vegetable broth
  • 15 ounces Kidney beans
  • 1 tablespoon Dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh basil - 1 teaspoon dried if you don't have fresh
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon Chili powder - optional and you may also substitute red pepper flakes.


  • Turn on the Instant Pot and press the sauté mode.
  • Add in the olive oil and heat to medium high.
  • Add the onions and sauté for until they soften. About 2-3 minutes.
  • Place in garlic and sauté for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the carrots, oregano, basil, salt, pepper, and optional chili powder.
  • Stir in 2 cups of the vegetable broth and cook until the carrots soften a bit. About 4-5 minutes.
  • Add in the diced tomatoes, beans, tomato puree (crushed), zucchini, and remaining vegetable broth. Add in the pasta.
  • Press cancel on the Instant pot and seal the lid.
  • Cook on high pressure for 6 minutes and release the pressure after using the quick release method.
  • Be careful not to be burned by the steam. I use a towel to cover the valve, so the steam does not spray everywhere.
  • Serve with fresh basil if you wish.
