Guys… when I tell you that this pressure cooker recipe for macaroni and cheese is ridiculously easy… I’m not kidding. It was a JOKE and it was delicious!!! OH MY WORD. Had it all done in 8 minutes. And there was no dumping of water, usage of a colander, hovering over the stove waiting for water to boil – NOTHING.


Here’s what you need:

  • 2 packages of shredded cheese ( I chose 2 cheddar but you can swap one out for mozzarella)
  • 1 box of elbow or cavatelli pasta
  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 cups of milk (I used 1% – use whatever you have)
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • Salt and Pepper
Select BROWN on your machine and melt the butter. Then toss the uncooked pasta in and coat. Add the water and salt and close your top. Set pressure to 40 and cook for 6 minutes.
Release steam and open cooker up.


Now add the rest of the ingredients and stir. Close the release steam button again and set the pressure to 40 and the cooking time for 2 minutes. When that’s finished, release steam again, open up top and stir.



Are you looking for more recipes? I have a TON! Click here to check them out. I have to confess. I am on a pressure cooker kick – but that’s only because I’ve been told by my OBGYN to take it easy and try not to stand too much. I need a method that doesn’t require much from me. And throwing everything in a pot like a crock pot or a pressure cooker is really working for me.
