The basil in my urban container garden was ready to be made into our first bruschetta of the season, and the question came up — what should we have with it as our main course. I don’t know why it took so long to figure this out, but it suddenly occurred to me that I could make a delicious Parmesan Alfredo in the Instant Pot in exactly the same way we make our awesome mac-n-cheese.
So without further ado, I threw this together and my kids declared it “amazing”, “perfect”, and “delicious”. What I love about it most is that by using the Instant Pot I just turned this into a one-dish, no strainer, easy dinner for moms to cook on rushed nights and super easy cleanup too. It takes almost no effort to make this Parmesan Alfredo, and if you happened to have chicken or sausage (pre-cooked meats) or veggies you want to throw in during the final step to heat up with the cream – you can do that too! Just switch the IP back to the sauté setting to get an extra oomph of heat. So, so easy.
