Ingredients

  • 16 oz pasta
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 cups water
  • 5 oz can evaporated milk
  • 3 cups shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Place the dry pasta, butter, garlic salt, salt, dry mustard and water into the IP cooker pot. Place the lid on the top and seal the toggle switch. Press manual (high) and timer for 4 minutes.
  • When cooking time is complete, do a quick release and remove the lid when the pin drops.
  • Keeping the pressure cooking on low heat (the Instant Pot will automatically go into this warm mode after cooking) Add the evaporated milk, and half the cheeses. Melt the cheeses by stirring, and when the first batch of cheese is melted, add the second half.
  • Test for seasoning and add more salt (and pepper) if you prefer. Remove mac and cheese from heat source and let rest for about 5 mins to let the sauce thicken.
