by in Dinner, Recipes March 20, 2019

Not a staple dinner in our house, but definitely a GREAT comfort meal every once in a while!! The very first time I made this dish, it was a HUGE hit with my hubby and kids! Enjoy 🙂

16 oz whole wheat pasta or GF, chickpea, quinoa  (macaroni, ziti, spirals, your choice) OR this one from Trader Joes
4 cups low sodium chicken broth or bone broth
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp ghee or organic butter
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup 2% cottage cheese
1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
salt & pepper to taste

Place noodles, broth, ghee, garlic powder and mustard in the Instant Pot and mix well.
Set your pot on manual (high pressure) for 10 minutes. (Note: ziti noodles may take a few minutes longer)
When time runs out, release the pressure and remove the lid.
Give the noodles a quick stir. Add the cheeses, yogurt, and seasonings and seal the lid to keep warm until served.
