Instant Pot Pasta – Cheesy Penne

I wanted one of those coveted Star Wars models, but my daughter ended up winning a Duo60 at her office Christmas party, so she gave me that one.  Not to be defeated I went to Etsy and ordered an R2-D2 wrap for it.  So a new series of blog posts are born called “Droid Makes Dinner.”  This will hopefully be a collection of many recipes I’ll share that “Artoo” helps me make 😉

Mini Mac & Cheese Pot Pies

MINI MAC & CHEESE POT PIESSince my family’s palate is very sparse, I have to find new ways of serving up the things they’ll actually eat.  I have a pretty good recipe for Chicken Pot Pie that I don’t mess with, but when I saw a magazine ad for Mini Chicken Pot Pies, I was itching to make some mini comfort food and thought “mmm… Mac & Cheese.”

I don’t want to drop the proverbial ball though when it comes to dinner, but at this time of the year I’m all about quick and easy.

In my family a “perfect” recipe needs just three things: pasta, sauce and cheese. But I’m trying to find a way to sneak some healthier food in where possible and a ravioli baked dish seemed like a great opportunity for just that. The problem?
