Instant Pot Creamy Broccoli Mac and Cheese

Mac & Cheese is my weakness... and while I LOVE the convenience of the boxed stuff, I hate thinking about all the chemicals and junk that's in it. So, I've tweaking a ton of different recipes to find just what I want. This one was pretty darn close. It even reheated well.

Ingredients List

1 pound Medium Shells pasta

3 tablespoons unsalted Butter

Kosher Salt & Black Pepper

4 cups Broccoli florets

1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard

1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder

1 5oz can Evaporated Milk

12oz Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese (grated)

  1. Add Pasta, Butter & 1.5 teaspoons Salt to Instant Pot.

  2. Stir in 4.5 cups water.

  3. Set to high pressure for 5 minutes.

  4. When finished cooking, carefully quick-release pressure.

  5. Select the high sauté setting.

  6. Stir in Broccoli.

  7. Cook, stirring occasionally until tender and the liquid has reduced. About 3-4 minutes.

  8. Stir in Dijon and Garlic Powder.

  9. Select the warm setting.

  10. Stir in Milk and Half & Half until warmed. About 2 minutes.

  11. Gradually add in Cheese until melted, about 3 minutes.
