Smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese
If you've been too scared to try pasta in your Instant Pot, have no fear… Smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese is here! This macaroni and cheese recipe is literally packed full of flavor (and cheeeeese!).
2 cups uncooked macaroni
2 cups water
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 tbs butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cayenne pepper (or black pepper) to taste
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded smoked gouda cheese
Combine macaroni and water in Instant Pot (I use this one) and cook on high pressure for 6-7 minutes.
**Make sure to stir noodles/water well before cooking to break up any clumps of noodles that might form.
When fully cooked, vent your cooker until steam runs out. Then open and dump in your cheeses, evaporated milk, salt, and butter.
Mix well for about 2 minutes or until you have an evenly thick/creamy consistency. Yum!!
Sprinkle with pepper of choice and serve.
