Pressure Cooker mac and cheese – quick, easy, and better than the dreaded blue box.
4 cups of water is just enough to cook 1 pound (16 ounces) of pasta. No draining is necessary; the water will be absorbed by the pasta. If you have a smaller box of pasta – 12 ounces and 13.25 ounces are comon sizes of whole wheat pasta – cut the water back to 3 cups. (Everything else can stay the same.)
