Instant Pot Mac and Cheese Made with Ricotta

Mac and cheese is one of the most popular dishes over the world. It’s easy to make and kid friendly, which makes it a great & filling dinner for the whole family.

There are many upgrade options for this recipe. You can make it using spinach & pine nuts or any other vegetable you like (or want your children to like…).

I even found a vegan mac and cheese recipe which looks amazing. It’s from the blog Eat With Clarity and I’m sure your vegan friends will like it.
