Instant Pot Cheeseburger Mushroom Pasta is a quick weeknight dinner that comes together easily in the Instant Pot. An easy dinner that the kids love to eat that is packed with cheesy goodness, and adds a little veggie to the meal. Don’t forget to PIN it for later!
Dice one onion, and turn the Instant Pot on to the saute function. Add the onions to the pot with some olive oil with the sliced mushrooms and cook for a few minutes. If you don’t like mushrooms you can always substitute with another vegetable. If you use frozen just be sure to add them in at the same time as the beef broth below.
Add the ground beef, salt and pepper to taste, and cook until no longer pink.
Drain off excess grease. Add Velveeta, Colby Jack Cheese, and Cream Cheese then melt. Add the beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, hot sauce, and pasta. Any pasta with a max cook time of ten minutes should work for this recipe. Seal the Instant Pot, and cook on high pressure for 4 minutes then do a quick release (slowly – mind the pasta as you might have some extra liquid try to come out when releasing the pressure so you can release in short bursts if needed). Add one additional cup of Colby Jack cheese and usalted butter to pot, set to saute to melt. Serve immediately, or store leftovers in an airtight container for up to one week.
