How to Make Instant Pot Gluten Free Mac and Cheese

It is really easy to make mac and cheese in an Instant Pot. You will add everything except the dairy to the pot and cook. No draining needed! Once done, stir in the milk and cheeses until melted.

First, combine the pasta, broth, butter, salt, pepper and garlic in the Instant Pot and twist on the locking lid. Select the Manual setting. Set the Instant Pot for ½ of the time listed on the package of pasta.

When the pot has finished the pressurized cook time and beeps, allow everything to Natural Pressure Release for 2 minutes. Then cover the steam valve with a clean, damp cloth. This will help release the steam without dangerous and messy liquids spraying everywhere.
