I think my Mom makes the best Macaroni and Cheese. It gets requested for showers, parties, and pot lucks. One of the reasons I love it…other than the deliciousness of it, is that it is a crock pot recipe. You can put it in the crock pot and leave it for hours. It will not heat up your kitchen during these sweltering days either. I made it for a birthday party a few weeks back so I took pictures so you could see how to make it.
First, I cook my pasta…I actually under cook it because it will finish cooking in the crock pot.
Next, I mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
I add the pasta last and mix well.
Then I spray my crock pot with cooking spray…VERY IMPORTANT for easier clean up!!
I just pour everything in the crock pot and cook on low for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
This is what it looks like when it’s done. It is so good!!
Crock Pot Macaroni and Cheese
4 cups cooked pasta (Al Dente)
(I use a little more pasta…like a 12 oz box)
2 cans evaporated milk
1 teas. Salt
1 package powdered cheese from box of mac & cheese
6 cups shredded cheddar cheese (I like to use a couple cups of the extra sharp to give it more of a zip)
1 stick butter (melted)
½ teas pepper
Mix all ingredients together and cook in crock pot on low for 2 ½ to 3 hours. Don’t forget to spray your crock pot with cooking spray or line it with a crock pot liner or this will be a mess to clean up!!
The recipe says it serves about 12. When I make this as an entree for my family of 6…it all gets eaten.
For the pictures above, I doubled this recipe. It filled my whole crock pot…I used a 32 oz. box of uncooked pasta and doubled everything else. I cooked it for 3 hours on high.
