“Very simply put, Meat wrapped in a noodle. This is the fast and easy version of what I would take hours of prep for the holidays, but I want it fast now for dinner. Feel free to alter this to your liking, Please keep in mind, if I were making this for the holidays or guests, I would be making my own sauce and pasta dough. I have served the fast version to guest and they love it! You can cook this several ways, but this is for your electric pressure cooker, for fast and easy 20 minute dinner!”
