"Love this mac n cheese! I am a big Mac n cheese lover and have tried tons of recipes. This is one of my top 2! Definitely #1 for creaminess and an easy crockpot recipe. The only change I make is to add more macaron and sometimes I do all sharp cheddar. I usually do 1 1/2 the suggested amount- around 1lb of noodles (4 1/2ish cups dry). It's still plenty creamy and delicious- you could even double the noodles for a bigger crowd. Not a diet food for sure but pure delicious comfort food!"

"Easy and so yummy & creamy... My family loved this mac & cheese! Will definitely keep this recipe handy. Makes a lot, though, so should halve for family dinner night for four."

"Excellent! I was skeptical as I'm not a huge macaroni and cheese fan, but this was really good. I added half a package of bacon and onion powder, but other than that, I followed the recipe. My husband has already requested I make this for Christmas Eve with Ham."

"This is a great recipe! I have served it over and over at international student potlucks for the vegetarians in our midst. And there are never leftovers! A definitely keeper in my recipe box! I omit the eggs, and put the rest in a crock pot to serve to the group."
