Three Minute Meal: Instant Pot Banza Mac & Cheese
A variety pack of Banza’s new Mac & Cheese arrived this week. Within minutes, I had it in the Instant Pot to see if I could make a product that is already easy to prepare even easier. And the answer is YES. Three minutes in the Instant Pot and I had hot, creamy mac & cheese that is made with my favorite chickpea pasta.
I’ve already professed my love for Banza pasta. It’s high in protein and lower in carbs than other pastas, gluten-free and gluten-full. It also has a terrific texture and doesn’t fall apart when cooking. Gluten-free pasta is tricky, so many failures have happened in my kitchen with it. But not with Banza. Plus it reheats well should you have any leftovers!
Mac & Cheese in a box not your thing? Here’s my Instant Pot recipe for a more traditional Mac & Cheese.
Alrighty, let’s get to the recipe…
Disclosure: The nice folks at Banza sent a sample assortment of Mac & Cheese to me. I was not asked nor required to write about this product. As always, I only write about products I use in my kitchen and would buy with my own money. I received no compensation for this post.
