Mac & Cheese
We love homemade macaroni and cheese at our house, but making the sauce always was a bit of pain. Not anymore! Put 4 cups of water into the Instant Pot with a pound of elbow macaroni. (You may want to add a tablespoon or two of butter, but keep in mind that if you do a quick-release, the steam will be a bit messy.) Set to “Manual” for four minutes. After de-pressurizing, mix in 4 oz of cream cheese and 16 oz of shredded cheese (we like sharp cheddar, but you may want to experiment with different flavors.) Lastly, add in 1 cup of whole milk. Stir everything together until cheeses are melted. At this stage, we like to add in a bag of microwaved veggies.
