This mac and cheese is so creamy and delicious, our kids had second and third helpings! The only thing we substituted was the macaroni, we made it with gluten free noodles. The seasonings give it a cool, garlicky flavor, almost like ranch dressing mac and cheese. So good!

This was my first time trying pressure cooker mac and cheese. I didn't use all the seasonings it called for, just salt, pepper, and a dash of paprika. This was a good recipe that is very family-friendly. I ate it up quick!

I used gluten free pasta and added some broccoli. I cannot believe how fast this was and no dirty pots! I did shredded mozarella instead of jack and loved how creamy it was, also loved that it used almond milk!

Love that I don't have to spend hours baking mac and cheese. This version is creamy and delicious. From start to finish this recipe took around 20 minutes to make. Can't beat that. I'd spend more time boiling water for instant mac. So glad I found this recipe.

Four minutes was the perfect amount of time to cook the pasta noodles. I didn't notice but when I stirred in the Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses with the noodles my pressure cooker was on the Saute feature. They didn't burn or anything, it worked out well.

I loved this recipe. It is really cheesy. I used regular milk and warmed up the milk a little before putting it in with the noodles. I don’t think I had to but it helped with the cheese melting. I added parsley and red pepper flakes just to heat it up a little. I think I might sauté some onions next time. If you follow this recipe it is quick and very easy!! I will make this again but might cut the recipe in half because it makes a lot and a little too much for two people.

Love that the noodles can be cooked in my Instant Pot. I used wagon wheel noodles and shredded blend of three cheeses I had on hand. Turned out great. I’m going to add fresh vegetables next time.

Noodles were cooked perfect but way too cheesy for our tastes so we will be changing that for next time.

HELP! Okay guys what am I doing wrong? Anytime, I try to make a pasta recipe my pasta sticks to the bottom of the pot.

Followed recipe to a T. Almond milk was overwhelming. Grossest mac n cheese I’ve ever had.

Soo GOOD. Since only two we halfed the ingredients. That was my wife’s favorite. Even used regular milk.

Second thing I have made in my new pot. Turned out great ! I did tweak a little, added just a pinch of red Pepper flakes , used skim milk and added fresh chives and threw in a little broccoli. Next time I’m going to use just a little less garlic powder but over all very tasty Mac and cheese indeed !😁
