Raise your hand if Macaroni & Cheese is one of your ultimate comfort foods! I mean a real, deal Macaroni & Cheese, made with a blend of cheeses you love. And what if you can get it on the table in minutes, with no heavy pots of boiling water to heat up your kitchen, constant checking for the perfect al dente on the noodles and the steam bath you get when draining that pasta? Step up to Instant Pot Macaroni & Cheese. It’s a game-changer.
Every once in a while I revisit Macaroni & Cheese. See. I’m always being seduced by gorgeous photos, and ultimately get disappointed. It seems every recipe I’ve ever tried had something going on with it that just wasn’t quite what fits my version of a perfect Mac & Cheese. Finally, after making so many over the years, and looking at so many recipes, I set about to make my own Ultimate Macaroni & Cheese with Herbed Bread Crumbs.
When I came across a recipe from Mark Bittman for sneaky, stealthy Creamy Cauliflower Mac & Cheese with a head of cauliflower hidden in the sauce, I took note. I love love love the idea of sneaking in veggies wherever possible and try to take advantage of that strategy when I can, so how could I resist?
