Recipes & Cooking / Re: Instant Pot!
« Last post by becca on Today at 06:36:13 PM »
There are lots of recipes, but you basically do the pasta(about 1/2 the time on the box, and as Hezz, said, add the cheese and some milk after, and stir it in.  You can eat is creamy, right from the pot, or them, if you like, put it into a casserole and top with bread crumbs and butter and bake till the top is crunchy.  Most recipes say to use cram, or evaporated milk, but I have used the 1% or 2% milk i have on hand and it works.  It is lighter too.  I think I use less cheese than many recipes too.  Some are very decadent. 

I think I started with this basic recipe, but tweak it by using regular milk, and less cheese.

The one we did for a swim meet this summer had you cook the pasta and then add the cheese to the pasta and stir as it melted.  We found the simplest/least number ingredients possible.  It was fine, but I'm not a mac and cheese eater.

How do you make mac and cheese? Do you make the sauce, then add macaroni and water?

If my kids would eat it all saucy like that, that would be a big win for my family.  That and the macaroni and cheese!

I liked it and so did the family. I used more sauce than usual--a jar and a half based on a combination of recipes. Loved the cleanup. Just put a cover on the pot and put it in the fridge. No washing a big spaghetti pot and a sauce pot and a colander. And it was about 30 minutes from start to finish--cook the meat, then put the pasta, sauce, and water in and let it go. I set it for 6 minutes for penne (box said to cook 12-13 minutes) and it was good. On my gas stove, it takes forever to boil a big pot of water.

Usually, for just basic spaghetti with meat sauce, I serve the spaghetti and sauce separately. But it was fine all together. And I have some other recipes where it all gets mixed together anyway. Some with a cream sauce. I'd have to figure out if those would work and how to do it.

Yeah, I totally know the feeling.  It's hard to be objective when you want answers so much. Good luck!  And I'm sorry you are feeling overwhelmed.  :(

I would divide the mins on the box of pasta by 2 and subtract 1

I like the infused flavor of the pasta, but overall it's overcooked and homogenous - not sure that's the right word

Oh yes, that does sound like me, including the part where you say you sometimes get raised welt with broken skin.

I already had a doctorís appointment next week so I will talk to her then.

My mind is overloaded and I am feeling overwhelmed so Iím going to try to stop thinking too much until I see the GP.

Iím most worried that I am so desperate for an answer that I am subconsciously squeezing and twisting my thoughts to make the pieces seem to feet. Iím not really trusting my objectivity right now.
