What is an Instant Pot?
You may be wondering, What is an Instant Pot? An Instant Pot (Pressure Cooker) is a 7in1 cooker, that slow cooks, pressure cooks, sautes and has settings for soup, chilli, rice, porridge etc. It will literally cook these meatballs in minutes, so perfect for when you need a meal on the table quickly.

Since buying my Instant Pot, I use it on a regular basis, it’s not one of those gadgets that sit in my cupboard forgotten. In fact, it never goes away.
Instant Pot is a brand of an electric pressure cooker, but there are various other brands and options out there.
Converting from Instant Pot to Stove Top
But what if you don't own a pressure cooker but would still really like to make this soup, how do you convert?
You can easily cook this on the stove and i've added instruction in the recipe box.
In a Instant Pot, the liquid you add doesn't reduce like on the stove, however, the pasta will absorb the stock as it cooks, so just keep an eye on it as it simmers, as you may need to up the stock ratio a little when cooking this on the stovetop.
Can I use different vegetables?
Sure, there is no right and wrong to the vegetables in this soup. The kids love the sweetness that butternut squash or sweet potato adds to soup so I always add one of those, but add whatever vegetable you like, so long as you have increased the stock ratio if needed it will be fine.
Occasionally I will add in a few handfuls of fresh spinach or kale if I have them on hand for some healthy greens, but the kids are not that keen on those at present, so I tend to half the soup when I do that and omit the spinach of kale for their servings.
Can this Vegetable Noodle Soup be frozen?
All the ingredients in this soup freeze fine. The only thing with cooked pasta is that it can become a bit stodgy when reheated, it will also keep absorbing up that stock, so if you do freeze and reheat you may need to add in more stock and just ensure with anything you are reheating that it's heated through.
How to Serve Instant Pot Vegetable Noodle Soup
If you are not vegetarian/Vegan then grated parmesan to the top is a great addition.
I sometimes will add in some cooked chicken or sausage too if I want to make it a more substantial meal. But the usually just dish up and enjoy this soup just as it is.
