Instant Pot Carbonara Pasta

Personally I prefer this dish prepared with pancetta but you will also like it with bacon. If possible, get the pancetta sliced ​​by your grocer because the prepackaged one is often too salty. Browning the garlic delicately flavors the butter and oil.

Servings: 2

Suggested accompaniements : Lettuce Salad and tomatoe.

Note that the total cooking time takes into account the time that the Instant Pot takes to start cooking and the cooking time.

2
