Cook pasta to 1 minute less than al dente.

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.

This is so good and so easy. Family says this is the only one I have to make from now on. Highly recommended.

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.

The best and easiest ever. Made it for the first time for a big office lunch and it was a huge hit. Have a family reunion coming and and this is what I'll be bringing!

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

Delicious! Served it with KFC chicken and everyone thought it was KFC mac & cheese.

I used a whole box of noodles, and added some chicken broth! That seemed to keep it nice and creamy !
