There are 3 things that we could never live without, well that is next to my Instant Pot, and those 3 things are macaroni, cheese, and ranch.

So why not put them all together in the magic pot and make a miracle happen.

Just 4 minutes in your pressure cooker and you have some amazing, al dente elbow macaroni, add your favorite combinations of shredded cheeses, salt, and pepper or you could try throwing in an Italian salad dressing packet, for something a little different.

The flavors went together so well. We ate it with Air Fryer Fried Chicken WIngs, and they complemented each other so well.

There are so many ways that you can make macaroni and cheese your own. I usually use sharp cheddar cheese, and almost always use heavy cream and sour cream.

It isn’t something that I enjoy but you could even use cheese sauce in your mac and cheese or evaporated milk.

Even add an egg and more milk, toss it into a baking dish with bread crumbs on top and bake for around 30 minutes for an amazing comfort food.

I have tons of macaroni recipes on my blog because we love macaroni!
