  • 14 ounces kielbasa
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 8 cups chicken broth low sodium
  • 16 ounces vegetable rotini pasta
  • 15.5 ounces can cannellini beans
  • 15.5 ounces can pinto beans
  • 8 ounces fresh spinach


  • Slice the kielbasa into thin slices and then quarter the slices.  Chop the onion and mince your garlic cloves.  
  • Turn on the Instant Pot to saute.  Once hot, add in the kielbasa and cook for about 4 minutes.  Quickly remove the kielbasa and set aside.  
  • Add in olive oil and onion.  Cook for about 4 minutes.  Now add in the garlic, thyme and Italian seasoning.  Stirring constantly, cook for about 1 minute.
  • Add just a little bit of the chicken broth to deglaze your pot.  Hit cancel.
  • Add in the pasta and the rest of the chicken broth.  Stir to mix and place lid on.  Turn the vent to seal.  Hit pressure cook/manual and set for 4 minutes.  Ours took about 20 minutes to build pressure.
  • When done, do a manual quick release.  It will take about 2 minutes.  Once the pin drops, carefully remove lid.  Add in the cannellini and pinto beans, juice and all.  Also add in the spinach and kielbasa.  Stir to combine and put lid back on.  Let sit for a couple of minutes to warm everything up.


This will be almost like a pasta dish as a lot of the broth will be absorbed.  We used a 6 quart Instant Pot for this dish.  It should be able to be done in an 8 quart but cannot be done in a 3 quart as written.
