Instant Pot Macaroni and Cheese
So easy that even ____ could make this.
Of course use whatever cheese you have stashed in the fridge, and don’t worry about the spiciness from the hot sauce, it’s tempered once cooked.
Take note of the pasta cooking time, general rule of thumb when pressure cooking pasta, is to half the lower amount of cooking time stated on the package. So if your package states 8-10 minutes of cooking time, cook at pressure for 4 minutes.
