Pressure Cooker 5-Cheese Mac & Cheese

June 7, 2018

This amazing recipe is perfect for your Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker.  Simple ingredients make rich & creamy mac and cheese that is sure to please - in only 7 minutes!  Just a few hints for perfect mac and cheese in your pressure cooker:

  • Use a dense pasta shape.  Hollow pastas can overcook and collapse into mush.  A nice dense pasta like gemelli, fusilli or casarecce are perfect.  Experiment until you find your favorite!

  • The cheeses are up to you.  But try to use 3 or more for a nice blend that will also give you depth.  The gorgonzola gives a nice "bite" at the finish, but isn't required.

  • Make sure to add your cheese a small handful at a time.  Adding it all at once causes clumping.  This forces you to stir it in and starts to break down the pasta.

Once you get the basics down, be creative and start creating your signature Mac & Cheese recipe!
