Instapot Penne alla Vodka

Fun fact: my family is OBSESSED with 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! We paired it with sausage because that goes perfectly with this dish! Give it a shot!
