If you don’t own an Instant Pot then try my Baked Mac and Cheese or Stovetop Mac and Cheese.
Easy Instant Pot Mac and Cheese
Miracle Instant Pot mac and cheese, that’s incredibly indulgent and flavorful, and made with only real cheese of course!
You wouldn’t believe how well this recipe turns out even without a roux, without heavy cream, and without using multiple pans.
The trick is that the pasta is cooked in a concentrated amount of liquid therefor it gets super starchy and helps create a silky smooth and creamy sauce.
Honestly the recipe is almost too easy. Does it get any better than pour and cook, blend the cheese right in, and only one pot to clean?
The only thing here that even takes a little bit of effort is grating the cheese. Everything else is a breeze!
But if you really want to take it over the top then just saute some panko bread crumbs with butter (while the macaroni is cooking) and finish individual servings with that crave-able, golden brown, crunchy topping.
For a last minute dinner pair this with a store-bought rotisserie chicken and a steamed veggie like broccoli.
You’ll have a comforting, homestyle, family-friendly dinner everyone will enjoy, even on the busiest day of the week! And for you it will take hardly any effort at all.
