Instant Pot Mac and Cheese

This is fast, easy, and 100% the bet homemade Mac and Cheese I’ve ever tasted



1 lb dry pasta (we like small shells)

4 cups broth or 4 cups hot water with 1 1/2 TBSP better than bullion paste

3 Tbsp salted butter

1 cup shredded Monterey Jack Cheese

2 cups shredded Cheddar Jack Cheese

1 1/2 cup heavy. cream

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp garlic powder


In the Instant Pot, combine the dry pasta, broth, and butter.

Place lid to lock and cook 4 minutes.

Quick Steam release (I always use a wooden spoon so as to avoid a steam burn)

Remove lid and stir in cheese, cream, seasonings.
