You know that moment that you fall in Love? When you can’t wait to see that person again? I think I am in love with my Instant Pot. Every day I am finding new dishes to make in my pot and I can’t wait to try to use it again, sounds like love to me. Today I was super busy and before I knew it it was 8 pm and I did not even start dinner. I use to go grab takeout. Now I just run into my kitchen and see what I can throw in the Instant Pot and see what comes out. Tonight I made a to die for Instant Pot Cheddar & Broccoli Pasta. The perfect way to hide veggies right in with pasta. Cheesy and creamy this will be your families new favorite meal.
This is a great Quick Instant Pot Meal You can even add in some frozen chicken or ham and make it a complete meal. You can also have this as an instant Pot side dish along with Sous Vide Chicken Breast. You can have your entire meal on your table in under 15 minutes. I make a big batch of Chicken breast in my sous vide every week so I have it to add to any meal.
