1 1/4cupgrated Pamesan Cheesegrated (reserve 1/2 cup for garnish)
Black Pepperto taste
For the Pasta:
Place dry PASTA NOODLES in the Instant Pot (inner liner); fill with enough water to cover noodles by 1”; close and lock the Instant Pot lid; turn steam release knob to “sealing” position; set Instant Pot to Manual High Pressure +1 minute.
When the cooking cycle ends, allow the pot to sit undisturbed for 10 minutes (natural pressure release); press "Cancel" on the IP button panel; unlock the lid, open, and remove the inner pot of pasta with hot pads.
Drain pasta in a colander; toss with a small amount OLIVE OIL to prevent sticking.
Wipe out the Instant Pot inner pot with a towel or paper towel and return it to the Instant Pot.
For the Shrimp:
Select "Sauté" on the Instant Pot and heat the OLIVE OIL.
When the display reads "Hot", add SHALLOT and sauté until tender (about 1 minute).
Add SHRIMP, DILL, and BLACK PEPPER; stir to coat the shrimp with oil; sauté it until it’s opaque throughout (3-4 minutes); transfer the shrimp to a plate, cover, and set aside.
For the Lemon Cream Sauce:
Continuing with the Instant Pot on the “saute” function; melt BUTTER in the inner pot.
Add CREAM, GARLIC, LEMON JUICE, and LEMON ZEST and heat until warm, whisking frequently to avoid it becoming scorched.
Whisk in the PARMESAN CHEESE until smooth; add SALT and PEPPER to taste (if needed); add cooked PASTA and cooked SHRIMP to the cream sauce, toss to coat.
When ingredients are warmed through, press “cancel” on the Instant Pot; cover until ready to serve.
Serve warm. Garnish with parmesan cheese and fresh dill.
