The Instant Pot is fantastic for cooking easy one-pot meals. Just like these Instant Pot meatballs, and this Instant Pot lasagna; this mac and cheese is a great recipe to add to your Instant Pot repertoire.

This mac and cheese is big on flavor, but made with simple ingredients that you likely already have on hand. The Instant Pot takes a classic family favorite and makes it even easier to prepare – you’re going to love how quickly this comes together!

It’s better than boxed macaroni and cheese, and easier than baked mac and cheese (which can take forever to cook). Best of all, whole family will love this deliciously creamy comfort food – you really can’t go wrong with this childhood favorite!
