MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 2, 2014

"I did everything in the crock pot and more than doubled the recipe. Used 16 ounces of Kraft 5 cheese Italian (couldn't find the fontina, so decided this would make a good substitute for it and the provolone), 8 ounces of Kraft sharp cheddar, 2 cans cheddar soup, 2 cups milk, 1 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup butter, 3 teaspoons onion powder, added 3 teaspoons garlic powder, 1 teaspoon white pepper, added 2 teaspoons yellow mustard. Did NOT add any salt. Used 32 ounces of elbow macaroni. Husband absolutely LOVED this! Made a full 6 quart crock pot."

"Very good. Could also add a bag of frozen mixed veggies at the end. Served with/on biscuits since I didn't have the instant potatoes."

"Really loved this recipe, very easy and tasty. Did take into account some of the other suggestions. I mixed everthing in the crockpot on high until the cheese was melted, took maybe 30 minutes. Then added the cooked pasta to the crockpot and cooked on low for about two hours. I also added about three cups of pasta instead of two cups. To save time, used 1cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese and 2 cups shredded italian blend cheese. Next time would like to use the fontina and provolone cheese to see if there is a difference in taste. Had on the side for toppings bacon bits and green onion. Look forward to making this again."
