It's a pressure cooker Miracle! This 4-ingredient pressure cooker mac n’ cheese is crazy easy, super creamy, and really delicious. It’s a simple, kid-friendly mac n’ cheese made with elbow macaroni and the secret is evaporated milk; evaporated milk contains 60% less water than regular milk so you get rich, creamy texture without any flour. Use gluten free pasta and make this recipe grain-free!

1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
