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.

  1. Made this tonight, though I never find the baked varieties worth the trouble, so skipped that part. Great kid approved cheese sauce! It was super saucy for us though, and next time I’ll use a pound of pasta (1 star deduction). When doing any mac n cheese always remember to undercook the pasta by 1-2 min for perfect noodle texture at serving. Yum!
