1lbgluten free penneI used Schar - 1 box and 1/3 of another box to make 16 oz
1teaspooncrushed/ground black pepper - or a steak seasoning
1cuphalf and half
3 1/2cupsshredded cheese - I used sharp cheddar and Monterey Jack
Put penne in Instant Pot. Add butter and seasonings. Top with water.
Put cover on the Instant Pot. Set the valve to seal.
Using the manual option, cook for 6 minutes if using Schar. (If using another brand, divide cook time on the box in half and subtract 1 minute.)
When the Instant Pot beeps, quick release the steam valve.
Add cream cheese. Stir well with a wooden spoon until mixed in.
Add the milk or half and half and the shredded cheese. Serve until melted and mixed in.
Serve immediately or put the cover back on! Don’t unplug the Instant Pot until you’re done serving/eating. I served kids over an hour apart due to sports practices and all I needed to do was stir it again before serving. Enjoy!
