Instant Pot Chicken Alfredo – Important Tips

  • I am using fettuccine, but you can use any shape of pasta like penne or spaghetti, etc.
  • If you don’t have shredded parmesan in hand, use a regular block of parmesan, but make sure to grate it with Microplane so that it melts well.
  • Avoid Pre Shredded parmesan because the sauce will become thin and not that creamy.

  • Try to use heavy cream instead of whipping cream, using whipping cream will make your sauce too thinner, its simply because it has less fat content.
  • Of course, you can use more parmesan cheese to adjust the thickness of your sauce if using whipping cream
  • When you open the lid the sauce will look watery and thin, don’t worry as the sauce starts to cool down it will thicken.
