Fix and Forget Crock Pots are perfect for this recipe. Just add ingredients and forget for a few hours. Stir gently as the pasta gets very soft. April 7, 2013
Sooo good This is delicious and mouth-watering. I want some now. March 31, 2013
Potluck mac and cheese This recipe is great for a potluck dish. It tastes good and will stay hot in the slowcooker. February 11, 2013
Better than the blue box. We all liked the flavor. But half of us prefer our pasta al dente, and our mac and cheese crusty. The half of my taste-testers who like the mushy, runny mix out of a box were thrilled, though. February 7, 2013
I love the recipe I have made this before, but with out the mustard, for my family for Thanksgiving. It was a big hit. There was no leftovers January 9, 2013
Very easy and fast recipe I like my pasta soft and moist so I really enjoyed this. Liked not having to cook the pasta first. January 2, 2013
It's ok Had good taste, very easy to prepare. Family ate it, so it wasn't all that bad. But It turned out mushy. My family likes a very crispy mac&cheese, they fight over the edges. If I make this in the crock pot again I will use less water. Other wise will boil the maccaroni then mix everything else together and bake in the oven. Will write another review when i bake it in the oven. March 1, 2012
