MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 31, 2014

This was excellent! I doubled it, and didn't bother heating the ingredients in a saucepan first. I just put everything in the crockpot except the pasta, heated on high for about an hour until everything was melted, and then added the pasta and heated on low for another couple hours. It was the perfect consistency (not too thin).

I made this for a potluck, and it was a hit! It was great tasting and easy to make! This one is going in the recipe box!

MY REVIEW

5 star easy & tasty but not for M&C purists. Canned soup gives it a slightly sweet taste, but makes the sauce easy. Fontina is inexpensive & can be hard to find, so i agree with others' recommendations to try other cheese blends. Sauce-to-cheese ration is high (very saucy) so if you like a more solid M&C, use more macaroni.

Love this recipe. It freezes great, too.
