  • 1 lb rotini pasta
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar
  • 1- 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded colby jack cheese
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp butter


  • Add the pasta to the pot, then pour in the broth. Press the pasta down, as needed, so as much as is possible is submerged beneath the broth.
  • Cook the pasta for 5 minutes on high pressure.
  • Quick release the pressure, and once possible carefully remove the lid and stir the cooked pasta.
  • Add in the cheeses, milk, butter, and seasonings, stirring to combine.
  • Let everything rest for 2-3 minutes- this will allow the sauce to thicken.
  • Stir again to combine everything, and then ladle into bowls and serve.
