Directions

1. In the insert of your Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker, combine dried pasta, water, bouillon cube, butter, mustard, onion, garlic, salt, pepper and hot sauce.

2. Give a good stir, lock the lid in place and make sure the vent is closed. Use manual mode to set the Instant Pot to High Pressure for 4 minutes.

3. Once the pressure cooker finishes the 4 minute countdown, open the vent and turn the Instant Pot completely off, otherwise the “keep warm” mode might overcook the pasta. Once the Instant Pot has released the pressure, turn the lid to open.

4. Stir in milk, cream then shredded cheddar and parmesan and continue stirring until cheese in completely melted.

5. Serve immediately, sprinkled with fresh chopped parsley and additional parmesan. Enjoy!
