Instant Pot Roasted Garlic & Parmesan Risotto

I have officially meal planned around the instant pot! I love this thing!! So quick and easy and works GREAT!! I will definitely be making many more of these meals. Also, this risotto is JUST as good as if you were to use the typical method!! I was very pleasantly surprised!! It took 5 minutes and was VERY easy!! Lastly, you can add in any flavors you like!!! Mushrooms, truffle spinach, sausage, the list goes on!! Let me know what you try!!
