  • Add dry pasta, chicken stock, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and garlic powder; stir with a wooden or plastic spoon, scraping the bottom of the pot to loosen any browned bits.

  • Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 5 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.

  • Stir in heavy cream, Romano and Parmesan cheeses. Let the pasta sit in the pot until the sauce is thickened, about 3 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use margarine in place of butter.
