How to Make Instant Pot Tortellini Soup

Rough chop your onion and garlic on your cutting board with the paring knife and cook them both in the heated olive oil for 2-3 minutes. Add in your tomato paste and toss gently with a wooden spoon for another 2-3 minutes.
Mix the seasonings in well and turn off the sauté function.
Carefully pour into the pot your crushed tomatoes. Stir gently to ensure all ingredients are covered by the liquid.
