  • Summary

    Surprise! You can make stuffed manicotti in an Instant Pot without the PIP method! Problem is, you can’t stuff the tubes with a lot of cheese (or with only cheese, for that matter). The cheese leaks out under pressure and inevitably burns against the insert’s surface. But by using a meat mixture with a little cheese, the filling stays compact. Admittedly, the filling is a bit drier than the classic oven-casserole version of this dish; but we fixed that by adding finely ground mushrooms to give it more moisture and keep it exceptionally toothsome, even after it cooks under pressure.

    Ingredients

    • 4 oz white or brown button mushrooms (brushed clean)
    • 1/2 lb lean ground beef (preferably 90 percent lean or more)
    • 1/4 cup Italian-style seasoned panko bread crumbs
    • 1 refrigerator-cold large egg (lightly beaten in a small bowl)
    • 1/2 oz parmigiano reggiano (finely grated (1/4 cup), plus lots more for garnishing)
    • 2 tsp dried oregano
    • 1 tsp dried basil
    • 1/2 tsp table salt
    • 8 raw dried manicotti tubes ((each about 5 inches long — do not use no-boil manicotti or cannelloni tubes))
    • 1 1/2 cups chicken or beef broth
    • 1 1/2 cups plain marinara sauce (do not use a chunky variety)
