Categories     Side Dish

Time 40m

Yield 10

Number Of Ingredients 12

1 (16 ounce) package elbow macaroni
1 quart chicken stock
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon dry mustard
½ teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
½ teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup milk
8 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Steps:

  • Combine macaroni, chicken stock, salt, dry mustard, liquid smoke, paprika, pepper, and garlic powder in a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®). Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 4 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Power up in the Instant Pot. Add the dry pasta, stock, butter, hot sauce, mustard, pepper and garlic powder to the inside pot and stir well.
  • Secure and lock the lid; make sure the pressure handle is pointing to Sealing on Duo Classic. Select Manual/Pressure Cook and adjust the timer to 4 minutes on HIGH pressure. After a few beeps/seconds, the ON sign will come on indicating the pot is heating up and the pressure is building; pressurizing will take about 12 minutes and then the 4-minute timer will begin.
  • Once the timer is done, use the quick release method to let off the remaining pressure (press the steam knob down or point to Venting on older models). Do not leave on natural release as the pasta will keep cooking!
  • While releasing the pressure, hover a kitchen towel 20-30 centimetres above the steam jet to catch any foam. Oftentimes, when cooking foods like pasta, some foam can form during cooking. Beware of your hands and face!

  • Add the dried pasta, chicken broth, water, butter, hot sauce, salt, garlic powder, pepper, smoked paprika, dried mustard, and onion powder to the liner of an Instant Pot. Use a wooden spoon to gently press down to make sure all pasta is submerged in the liquid. Don't stir.
  • Secure Instant Pot lid, making sure the valve is set to "sealing". Press the Pressure Cook or Manual button and use the +/- buttons to set the timer for 4 minutes.
  • Once the timer beeps, let out the pressure by carefully moving the valve to “venting" to perform a quick release. Be aware, this recipe is starchy, and can sputter quite a bit when venting. I usually place a folded paper towel loosely over the vent to prevent any kitchen messes.
  • When the pin drops, remove lid and set aside. Turn the Instant Pot OFF to avoid overcooking your pasta. There will be some water left in your pot - don't drain it. This helps create the smooth, cheesy sauce.

  • Slice the corn kernels off the cobs. Divide them into two halves. Add half of the fresh corn kernels to the Instant Pot together with 0.5 lb dry macaroni pasta, 1 litre of water, 1 teaspoon salt and a little oil. Reserve the rest of the corn for the cheese sauce.
  • Stir the pasta and corn in the Instant Pot, pop the lid on top and lock. Set to Manual/Pressure Cook and set the time to just 1 Minute (at high pressure). This smaller pasta doesn’t take long to cook and you don’t want to overcook it. The Instant Pot will take 5-10 minutes to come to pressure, then the timer will start.
  • While the pasta is cooking, prepare ingredients for the sauce. Add the remaining fresh corn and milk to blender and process into a smooth liquid.
  • Once done, allow no more than 5 minutes for natural pressure release. Then point the sealing valve to Venting to quickly release the remaining steam. We recommend holding a towel of the steam jet to catch any erupting foam, which is a normal occurrence when cooking pasta in the Instant Pot.
