I put all the ingredients into the instant pot and let it cook. Meanwhile, I make the pasta in my bialetti pasta pot. This is probably the second most used pot in my kitchen second to the instant pot. I just like to make cooking easy on weeknights if I can.

What Cheese?

Serve this instant pot soup with some bread or gluten free garlic bread. Either with or without bread this soup is amazing. We top the soup with a ton of parmesan. We love locatelli cheese but you can use whatever kind of cheese you’d like.

Even the Kraft parmesan cheese works just fine. However, don’t cheat on the herbs. The fresh herbs is what really makes the flavor in this soup. I use fresh grown basil along with organic Italian parsley.

Stir it all together with a good beef broth. Let it cook in the instant pot under high pressure for about 30 minutes. This allows the beef to go from frozen to fully tender. Make the pasta on the side then mix together before serving.
