  • Add the dry macaroni, water, butter, hot pepper, white pepper, and salt to the pressure cooker bowl. Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes. Quick-release pressure and remove lid.
  • Stir the pasta to release some of the moisture from the macaroni (do not drain).
  • Add half of the milk, stir, then add the cheese a handful at a time stirring between each addition, until smooth. Add more milk for a thinner sauce.
  • Stir in the cream and adjust salt if necessary. Best served immediately.
  • Notes: Keep in mind when recipes are scaled back: You need at least 1 cup of liquid in order for the pressure cooker to come to pressure, so if the amounts are too small this could be a problem.  Alternately you can cook on the stovetop.  Also, just like when cooking rice, water ratios change as amounts change.
