Instant Pot Mac and Cheese in 30 minutes

Rare and appropriate.

1 box of macaroni or penne or shells. 1 pound
One 12 ounce can of evaporated milk. (Can you use condensed milk? No. Just no. It’s gross. too sweet)
1/2 a stick of butter for flavor
3 cups of shredded cheese. start with mild or medium cheddar. Don’t come crying if you throw mozzarella in the instant pot.
Salt. maybe a tiny bit.
4 cups of water

Put the noodles and water in the instant pot.
Manual, high pressure for 4 minutes, maybe 5. Check the label, use half the boiling time.
Quick Release it safely.
Add butter, evaporated milk. stir.
Add cheese stirring constantly.
Keep stirring.
This is really good. Not healthy.

Put stuff in it. Broccoli. Bacon. Chicken.

Double Bonus
Substitute Velveeta for shredded cheese. This should only be done if you accidentally wear a hat during a televised national anthem or enjoy anything French except for kissing.

Boss Level
I just got a skillet that can go in the oven. This is important because I can now put cooked mac and cheese in the skillet. Sprinkle it with parmesan. Throw it under a broiler for a couple of minutes. Charge $12 for “adult mac and cheese” like a upscale burger place or Applebees or something.
