A twist to your normal Mac n Cheese. No graininess, just yumminess!

  1. Press Sauté normal and wait for ‘HOT’.
  2. Sauté Butter and Peppers. 
  3. Add pasta and water just enough to cover the pasta. 
  4. Add frozen shrimps.
  5. Press ‘Manual’, ‘High Pressure’ and set 3 mins. (I find 4 mins too mushy) Do an instant release.

  8. It is ready when Cheese has all melted.
  9. Serve hot.
