Description

This Instant Pot Three Cheese Macaroni and Cheese is a gluten-free family favorite recipe, made with a flavorful combination of three cheeses, and topped with toasted panko.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • ¾ cups Gluten Free Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 12 ounces, weight Gluten Free Elbow Macaroni
  • 3 cups Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Crushed
  • 2 Tablespoons All-purpose Flour
  • 1-¾ cup Milk
  • 1-½ teaspoon Onion Powder
  • ½ cups Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • ½ cups Parmesan Cheese
  • ¾ cups Mozzarella Cheese, Shredded
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • Fresh Parsley, For Garnish

Preparation

Power on the Instant Pot and turn on sauté mode. Add oil and panko, stirring until lightly toasted and color turns golden brown. Turn cooker off. Remove panko, set aside. Wipe clean the pot and return to cooker.

Add macaroni and water to the Instant Pot. Close lid, lock and turn the steam release handle to sealing position. Cook at high pressure for 3 minutes. When time is up, allow some of the pressure to be released naturally (about 5 minutes) then turn the steam release to venting to release remaining pressure. Drain pasta and set aside. Wipe inner pot clean and return to the cooker.

Turn on sauté mode and add butter. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant. Then add flour, milk and onion powder, stirring to combine. Cook until it starts to thicken, about 3 minutes. Add all 3 cheeses and season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir until cheese has melted. Add macaroni and fold to combine.

Transfer macaroni to a serving dish. Top with toasted panko and more Parmigiano cheese. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve hot.

This recipe is very easy and will be great for you if you like fettuccine alfredo. Its not my favorite so it will be hard to get rid of all this non traditional mac & cheese. On a positive the recipe is super easy to make
