Our kids just love this cheesy pasta and will sample a spoonful right from the slow cooker when they walk by. Sometimes I add cocktail sausages, sliced Polish sausage or cubed ham to make it into a hearty dinner. —Heidi Ferkovich, Park Falls, Wisconsin

"Using becmalo's changes, our family thinks it's "a keeper," with some additional seasoning. Next time, I'll add bacon or lil Smokies--it definitely needs a little more salt (I'm not usually a salt person.) for flavor. For ease of preparation, it definitely gets 5 stars, though. I love slow cooker recipes!"

"This is a good basic recipe, and although it was very rich-tasting, it didn't have much flavor. I reduced the fat considerably and added some seasoning and it's much better: 16 oz rotini pasta, 3/4 cup fat-free half and half, 3/4 cup skim milk, 10.75-oz can condensed cheddar cheese soup, 1/8 cup margarine or butter, 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1/4 tsp dry mustard, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp black pepper, 2.5 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (mild or sharp; or a mixture of both). With these changes, it's a keeper!"
