I would have hopped on a Facebook live to share how to make stuffed Manicotti in the Instant Pot. I did not because, for some odd reason I get very tongue tied saying Manicotti. I don’t say it like and Italian would, and I really don’t want to insult the nationality hahahaha, even though I am half Italian myself. I guess I say it like an Irishman would. I’m half Irish too.
Anyhow, this was an experiment as always for me. I have been wanting to try some stuffed shells in the Instant Pot. I thought the Manicotti would be easier to stuff the cheese inside opposed to shells. I did not pre-cook the pasta today. It all went in the pot uncooked. Let me get right to it.
I used two of my Insta-Pans to stack on one another. In one box of Barilla you get 14 shells. I made 7 shells in each pan.
This pan is truly so versatile. You can make bundt cakes one day, lasagna, meatloaf, and cheesecakes all the other days of the week. The pan does not come with a guaranteed weight loss certificate. Sorry, it may be the opposite if you don’t be careful. Proceed your purchase with caution: Find the Insta-Pan here.
The only thing I would do next time is add a little more ricotta cheese in the middle. I will share the recipe as if I did:)
Pin it, make it!
Enjoy! Hope to see you back again. See recipe down below.

Top with shredded cheese.
Add more sauce on top.
Next, place your other pan on top. Put lid on pot, seal, set to Manual, High Pressure and set your pot for 22 minutes.
Once your pot beeps do a Quick release. Use your silicone mitts, or other mitts to remove pans. They will be hot, so be careful.
Let cool for 5 minutes and top with remaining sauce that is warm.
Sprinkle more shredded cheese on top and enjoy!
