1. Add oil to the instant pot and turn to sauté. Once hot, add garlic and stir for 10 seconds. Turn instant pot off.
2. Add fettucine and chicken broth to the instant pot, making sure the noodles are covered in the liquid.
3. Turn valve to sealed and cook on manual (high pressure) for 3 minutes.
4. When the timer beeps, allow the pressure to naturally release for 6 minutes before turning the valve to release remaining pressure and opening the lid.
5. Stir pasta, breaking up any pieces that have stuck together.
6. In separate bowl, stir the cornstarch and milk together until smooth. Add to the instant pot along with the dry spices and parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
7. Turn instant pot to sauté setting and gently stir noodles until the sauce just begins to thicken. Turn off instant pot.
8. The sauce will thicken significantly as it cools, so allow it to cool for a few minutes before serving. You can add additional cheese to thicken the sauce, as needed.
