"Made this for three holiday/family dinners now and never disappointed! Not having much luck with pasta in the slow cooker before, I let all the cheeses melt together, then put the uncooked pasta in and stirred it to coat it well. Stirred again a couple times within the first hour, but once the pasta started getting softer left it alone. pasta stayed whole and not mushy, and it was perfect. I forgot the eggs the first time, so never have used them and everything else seems to be in perfect proportion."

"My new favorite macaroni and cheese, I have probably made this 6 times in the past 2 months for either home or work. This is a super easy recipe and turns out amazing every time. Even friends that don't care for macaroni and cheese have loved this recipe. Very rich and creamy. It's perfect for my casserole crock-pot (the 9x13 size). The only change I made was as someone else suggested, use the whole pound of macaroni and increase milk to 2 cups. This truly is a perfect potluck dish.

Additional note. I also tried this recipe in the oven and it was terrific. Used a large disposable pan set on top of a cookie sheet for easy clean up. Baked at 375 (to match my chicken recipe) and cooked for 45 minutes stirring twice during cooking and one last time when I pulled the pan out of the oven. Let sit 5 or 10 minutes. Wow!"

"This was very creamy, but I didn't think it had much of a taste, maybe that's just me."

"Flavor was really good. It's the second recipe I tried with pasta in the crockpot, It turns out I'm not a fan. I may try this recipe using the full box of pasta cooked, and baking it"

"I used the whole box of macaroni, as others had done. I also melted the cheese ingredients in the crockpot first before adding the macaroni. My husband like it, but I was not impressed. I much prefer my other way of making mac and cheese by making a white sauce, then adding what ever amount of cheese I need. I will say I always do add Velveeta to my mac and cheese along with cheddar."
