The quickest and easiest way to make your childhood favorite food.
Combine the dry pasta, pinch of kosher salt, and 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of water in the Instant Pot. Place the lid on, turn the valve to sealing, and set the cook time for 3 minutes on high pressure.
When the cook time is complete, quick release the pressure. Add butter and stir, breaking up the pasta. Sprinkle on the cheese powder, stir, then pour in the milk. Continue stirring, incorporating the cheese mixture into the noodles.
Turn the Instant Pot onto saute and cook the macaroni for 2-3 minutes until the cheese fully incorporate and the sauce thickens slightly if needed.
You can easily double this recipe and use two boxes of pasta. Double the ingredients, but keep the cook times the same.
