Easy Cheesy Creamy Greek Instant Pot Penne Pasta.  WE have a local Greek restaurant that makes the most amazing chicken penne pasta dish.  It seems like every catered event has it, so I set out to create a dish that tastes like it, but better!  Mine will be better because it will be done in under 10 minutes in my Instant Pot!

As much as I love this dish, it is just my favorite and most simple alfredo sauce with dried tomatoes, spinach, chicken, and penne pasta added to it.  You are going to absolutely love the end result of this recipe.  Not only is it super easy peasy to make, but it will be finished in a flash and tastes amazing!  All three of my kiddos and even my husband loved it.  They even ate the spinach!  One of my kiddos picked out the tomatoes, and I am totally okay with that.
