  • 6 mini sweet peppers or 2 bell peppers, red, orange, or yellow
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 1 lemon juice and zest
  • 1 bulb garlic
  • 2 tsp Minor's Vegetable Base
  • 1 Vidalia onion
  • 8 ounces angel hair pasta
  • 4 cups fresh spinach
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 Tbsp butter salted
  • ½ tsp sea salt fine grind
  • 1 ounce Parmesan cheese grated


  • Dice your onion into ¼" dice, peel and smash the garlic, zest the lemon, cut the sweet peppers into rings or dice them if using bell peppers. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half. Grate the Parmesan cheese with a microplane grater.
  • Put the onions, garlic, peppers into the inner pot. Break the pasta in half and fan it in the pot in alternate directions. See post for details.
  • Mix the vegetable base with the 2 cups of water and pour over the pasta. Juice the lemon and add the juice to the pot.
  • Put the pressure lid on and turn the valve to seal. Set the time to ZERO on high pressure. When the time is done, immediately release the pressure. Remove the lid.
  • The Ninja Foodi will be on warm and that is all the heat you need. Add in the cherry tomatoes, lemon zest, and spinach. Toss everything around so the spinach gets under the pasta and starts to wilt. Add in the salt, butter and Parmesan cheese. Stir until the cheese and butter melts.
  • Top with some grated parmesan cheese and fresh cracked pepper and Enjoy
