    My fav way of Cooking Garlic Noodles in IP - 2 step process

      Cooking Spaghetti in IP

      • Place the Instant Pot Liner inside the 6 quart Instant Pot and plug it in. Break 1 lb spaghetti or fettuccine into halves. Add these to the inner pot in a matted order or fan order. Check this you-tube from my channel to watch how I place my noodles in the IP. Add 4 cups of water and Pressure cook on high followed by QPR. For this recipe you want al-dente noodles. My packet read 8-10 minutes on gas top. I cooked for 3 minutes followed by QPR which takes about 2 minutes. Therefore the noodles get about 5 minutes in cooking including the pressure release time. Drain the spaghetti and separate the noodles with a fork. Set aside. Wipe the bottom of the Inner Pot with Kitchen Towel. Put it back inside the instant pot.

      Cooking Noodles in Garlic Sauce

      • Press Saute and set on medium. When the screen displays HOT, add oil to it. After few seconds, add chopped garlic and saute for a 30-45 seconds till garlic brown nicely. Add bell peppers and saute further for 1 minute. Now add Soy Sauce, Vegetarian Hoisin Sauce-, Sriracha, Salt and Pepper. Give a good stir with a stirrer. Now add the cooked spaghetti (noodles of your choice) back to the pot. Add chopped scallions. Give it all a good toss using the tongs. Sprinkle sesame seeds and serve warm.

      1 step Garlic Noodles in IP

      • Place the Instant Pot Liner inside the 6 quart Instant Pot and plug it in. Press Saute and set on medium. When the screen displays HOT, add oil to it. After few seconds, add chopped garlic and saute for a 30-45 seconds till garlic brown nicely. Add bell peppers and saute further for 1 minute. Now add Soy Sauce, Vegetarian Hoisin Sauce-, Sriracha, Salt and Pepper. Give a good stir with a stirrer. Cancel Saute. Add the spaghetti to the pot on top of the sauces. Add 4 cups of water/broth and Pressure cook on high for 4 minutes. Follow QPR. Open the lid. Separate the noodles with a fork. Add scallions and sesame seeds and toss together with tongs. Serve warm.

      Gas Top Instructions

      • This recipe can easily be made on gas -top. Boil the pasta separately and drain. Saute the garlic and add sauces followed by boiled pasta. Toss it all together.  If you are using any vegetables then you will add those after sauteeing the garlic. Finish with the garnish and serve hot.

      What kind of Noodles can I use for this recipe?

      I have used Spaghetti in this recipe. But Fettuccine & linguine will work really good in this recipe too. 

      What can I use in place of Vegetarian Hoisin Sauce?

      In case you do not have vegetarian hoisin, use Ketchup instead. Believe me that sweet and tart taste of ketchup brings it together.

      What kind of Vegetables can I use for this recipe?

      Although this recipe does not need any vegetables, but you can personalize it with the vegetables.
      I often use classic coleslaw that has finely shredded cabbage and carrots in it. 
      Broccoli, carrots, green beans, bell peppers are some vegetables that you can use in the recipe.

      Can I make this recipe ahead of time?

      Yes you can. Make it ahead of time and re-heat and use when ready to eat.

      Can I half the recipe?

      Yes you can make this recipe with 8 ounce noodles instead of 1 pound (16 ounce) noodles.

      Does the time vary when I half or double the quantity?

      The time will remain the same. Most of the long pasta/noodles take 10-12 minutes on gas top. Therefore for Instant pot cooking, we will half the time to 5 minutes and follow QPR (quick pressure release).

      How to re-heat the leftovers?

      You can either microwave it with a spritz of water or re-heat on gas top in a large pan with little water.
