Cauliflower Mac And Cheese (By Instant Brands Instant Pot)

This healthy twist on a good old American classic will go down a treat even with the pickiest of eaters. The macaroni gets replaced with healthy vegetable cauliflower, which has a distinctive but not overpowering taste.

And there’s all sorts of flavoring to boost it above the likes of your regular mac and cheese. There’s oregano, onion, and minced garlic, and heavy cream. It’s ready in under half an hour and serves 4.

Instant Pot Lasagna Soup (By Laura Lawless – The Recipe Well)

Don’t you just love the contrasting flavors in lasagna? So tomatoey and rich against the taste of mature cheddar and pasta. Amazing comfort food.

The recipe uses many of the same ingredients you would use in a regular lasagna. But you get to use your favorite marinara sauce, and if you want to go for something a little healthier than ground beef, you can replace it with ground turkey. It takes less than an hour to prep and cook.
