"So easy! Loved this. I made a few substitutions based on what I had on hand. I used pinwheel pasta (3 cups uncooked) instead of elbow macaroni, 1/2 cup of cheese spread in place of the sour cream, and cream of mushroom soup. I also used shredded 4-cheese blend and added 1/4 tsp. dry mustard. If was so creamy and full of flavor!"

"I make this all of the time for a large group get together, summer pot lucks with kids. I do omit the onion powder and add a dash of nutmeg instead. I have used a combination of cheeses, i.e. cheddar, Swiss. Italian blend. It always turns out great. easy to make a double batch in a 6 qt. slow cooker. Just don't over cook in the crockpot, or the pasta will get mushy. I usually turn it off low after an hour and leave it on warm."

"Fantastic, one of the best Mac n Cheese recipes out there. I use any 3 cheeses that I have around and it's still amazing. Only thing I add for personal preference is mustard powder."

"I have made this twice & it's definitely a crowd pleaser! I double the recipe & mix the milk, sour cream, & cheeses in the crock pot to allow cheese to melt instead of using a pan. Easier & less clean up"
