5 from 3 reviews

Traditional Mac & Cheese in less time.


  • 1 Box of Elbow Noodles (or any small spiral noodle)
  • 4 cups Water
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1 TLB Butter
  • 1/2 cup of warmed milk
  • 3 to 4 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 cup of Mozzarella Cheese if desired


  1. Place the  Water, Salt, & Noodles in the inner pot of the Instant Pot.
  2. Place the lid on and Seal
  3. Set the timer for 2 minutes for the elbow noodles.
  4. Have the Cheese ready
  5. When the timer is done, turn the valve to fast release.
  6. Open the lid
  7. Stir, (I take my insert pot off of the heating element so the bottom does not burn)
  8. Add the Cheeses, milk, butter, and stir



You need to add the salt to this recipe or the liquid tends to bubble out the top of the release valve.
