So, here goes my first instant pot post. Ok, Ok, so you are wondering, what is the big deal? Well, personally i have never used a pressure cooker of fear of blowing the roof off! And then 4 yrs ago,i heard how fast and amazing these new pressure cookers work. Well, my hubby got me one for my birthday and my world has been transformed!
So , i thought i would start out with the famous, never can go wrong meal, MAC N CHEESE. Now my kiddos are crazy about this and they have seconds and thirds. And did i mention it literally is done in ten minutes flat!? Of course, if you do not have an instant pot or other brand pressure cooker , I am sure you can make this on the stove top too, just not in ten minutes.
- I box (16 ounce of elbow macaroni)
- 1 cup of heavy whipping cream ( 1 can of evaporated milk(12 ounce) would work or even whole milk)I think I added a little more till I got the consistency I was looking for- (Tablespoon at a time)
- 3 Tb of butter
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
- 4 cups of water
Inside the instant pot, place the macaroni, water, salt and butter. Set instant pot on 4 minutes manual , manual release pressure(quick release). After that is done, take lid off and set pot on saute and add whipping cream, and stir. Then slowly add cheese as it melts! enjoy!
