Yummy! I thought that this recipe was very good. I did as another suggested and melted cheeses and other ingredients in the slow cooker, then added the macaroni. Mine curdled a bit, but was still very good.

Great recipe. Thanks to all the cooks who suggested revisions. As a result,I used a full box of radiatorre pasta, increased milk to 2 cups, and added a few shakes of hot sauce, garlic salt, and 1/2 tsp ground mustard. Baked in 9x13 pan in over for 45 minutes. The soccer boys gobbled it up!!

Instead of 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese I did 1 cup shredded gruyere and 1 cup sharp yellow cheddar. I also added 1 teaspoon paprika and 1 teaspoon pepper. So good!

I made this previously, and made it again last night with some minor changes. I added a teaspoon of onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce, and I used Radiatorre pasta (the shape grabs a lot of sauce). Easy and very creamy!

Might skip the eggs next time and add less sharp cheese

Let me start by saying my husband is not a cheese fan. If we go to a Mexican restaurant, he orders tacos, burritos etc. with no cheese. He was watching a cooking show one day and they were talking about homemade Mac and cheese. He turned to me and said, we should try homemade Mac and cheese sometime. While I was shocked at this request, I knew I would have to find an off the chain recipe! Well, I found it! I did not change a thing in this recipe. Since it is only my husband and I, it looks like my neighbors will be getting some Mac and cheese tomorrow! Awesome recipe! Thanks!

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.
