Instant Pot Shrimp Alfredo

Is there anything more comforting than a bowl of pasta? Probably not. Second question: Is there anything more satisfying than cooking an entire meal in one pot? Nope, that’s why you bought an Instant Pot! Well, this Instant Pot Shrimp Alfredo is both of those – with the classic flavor that we all love.

 

Splurge on the Cheese!

If you’ve never bought Parmigiano Reggiano before, I’d say now’s the time to go for it. Around the world, it is really considered the “King of Cheese”. There’s just something about the buttery and nutty flavor that is truly addictive. It’s not cheap, so I don’t use it often. But it really did take this simple Instant Pot Shrimp Alfredo to another level.

      Definitely “keep warm” so that you don’t lose too much heat to cook the shrimp.

    What would be a good substitute for the Chicken broth? Have a family member allergic to poultry. Thanks!
