Instructions
  1. Preheat the inner pot on Saute, High/More for 20 Minutes. Sauté the diced bacon for 12-15 Minutes, stirring occasionally until golden and crispy. Remove all bacon fat and pieces to a separate mixing bowl and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot.
  2. Add the pasta and water into the inner pot. Stir to coat all the noodles. Pressure Cook on High for 4 Minutes, immediately releasing the pressure once complete.
  3. Stir in the half and half. Slowly add in the shredded cheeses, one handful at a time, stirring until all the cheese has melted.
  4. Add the grated parmesan, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and the reserved bacon. Stir to combine.
  5. Serve with additional parmesan to sprinkle and eat while warm.
