Instant Pot Perfect Parmesan Alfredo

  • 1 1/2 Cups Colby Jack Cheese Blend (grated)
  • 1 1/2 Cups Parmesan Cheese (grated)
  • 2 Tbsp Butter
  • Salt and Pepper to taste (I didn’t use any salt because parmesan is salty, but I do love fresh cracked pepper on my alfredo!)


  1. Turn your Instant Pot on to Sauté setting.
