  1. Step 1

    Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; cook rotini at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute function. Allow pot to get hot, then add turkey, shallot, garlic granules, and Italian seasoning. Cook, breaking up turkey until crumbly and browned, about 5 minutes. Cancel Saute mode. Level out turkey mixture. Spread the carrots and zucchini over the top.
  3. Step 3

    Mix marinara sauce and milk together. Pour over the vegetables. Place cream cheese on top. Do not stir. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 5 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
  4. Step 4

    Drain pasta. Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Add drained pasta and stir to combine.
