"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."

"Oh my gosh. This is my new favorite mac and cheese. I increased the amount of noodles to a full box, also added some pepper, salt, a pinch of nutmeg, and a little bit of garlic powder. Used probably 1/2 cup more milk to compensate for the noodles. Was still super cheesy and the creamiest mac and cheese I've ever had. Will remake often!"

"Made this yesterday for the first time. I used cavatappi pasta. When using a larger size pasta shape such as cavatappi, increase the amount to about 5 cups. I followed the sauce recipe exactly as written, but I melted the ingredients in a saucepan first. I added the al-dente pasta to the greased crockpot, then mixed in the creamy sauce, then stirred in the eggs. Doing it this way, serve after an hour. My crockpot runs somewhat hot on low setting, so when I make this again I will turn it down to warm setting after one hour. It was a big hit at our wiener roast cookout last night."
