Pressure Cooker (Instant Pot) Fettuccine Alfredo

I jumped on to the Instant Pot bandwagon on Prime Day 2016. I used my Instant Pot for the first time probably March 2017, aside from the water test just to make sure it worked (and I still wasn't sure 😄). I have not made a lot in it, and that is something I'm trying to rectify.

It really is a time saver IF you plan accordingly. The first time I used it for actual food I did not realize it would take time to come to pressure and release pressure. But once I realized that and started planning for that additional time, I've been able to plan more pressure cooker meals.

I work full time, and usually at the office, so the Instant Pot does come in handy on days that I have things I need to do at home after work, and don't have time to prep, saute, bake, etc. Once the food is in the pot and I turn it on, it is hands-off until nearly time to eat. Which gives me more time to help my son with homework, straighten up around the house, get ready for soccer practice, or hopefully…
