Mac 'n Cheese

  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups elbow macaroni
  • 1/2 tbsp minced onion dried
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese shredded

Bread Crumb Topping

  • 2 slices bread

Instructions

  • Place the broth, elbow macaroni pasta and minced onion in the Instant Pot liner.

  • While the pasta is cooking, make the breadcrumb topping. Place the two slices of bread in a blender or food processor and pulse until the slices are fine crumbs.
  • Pulse in the melted butter, garlic and parsley. Set aside.
  • Quick release the pressure when the pasta has finished cooking and has naturally released pressure for 3 minutes.
