Pressure Cooker Mac and Cheese
yield: 8 SERVINGS
prep time: 5 MINUTES
cook time: 20 MINUTES
total time: 25 MINUTES
Make this easy pressure cooker mac and cheese for your family weeknight dinner or a cheesy and creamy side dish.
- 1lb. Elbow Macaroni
- 2 Tablespoons Butter
- 4 Cups water
- 1 Tablespoon Mustard
- 1 Teaspoon Tabasco Sauce
- 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
- 12 oz. Can Evaporated Milk
- 3 Cups (12 oz.) Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
- 3/4 cup (3 oz.) Parmesan Cheese, shredded
Note: The actual cooking time is closer to 20 minutes, because it takes time for the machine to come to pressure and then it cooks. I still feel like it’s easier and more convenient than boiling water on the stove, but if you don’t have a pressure cooker, you can cook your noodles on the stove first and then follow the rest of the instructions.
