I have just been absolutely craving penne alla vodka. But that can get very very high in points. So, as I usually do, I said, why don’t I put my Allie Carte spin on it and make something extremely delicious that’s low in points! How good does this super creamy, tasteful sauce look! I paired it with some ground chicken and Banza pasta for a whole lotta protein. A great way to keep me full all day while working.

- Cover the pot and secure the lid. Make sure the valve is set to sealing. Set the pressure cook button to 5 minutes and start it (set to 6 if you like the pasta softer)
