Mac and Cheese (Crockpot)

By Beth Anderson on February 24, 2015 at 1:04pm

3 c shredded cheese, such as cheddar
16 oz uncooked macaroni shells, elbow pastat
8 ox cream cheese (may use the light)
2 1/2 c milk
1/2 tsp salt or more to taste
pepper to taste

Place all items in slow cooker.  Do not stir much, but try to mostly keep pasta wet.  Cover and cook on low 2 1/2 to 3 hours…stirring after 2 hours.  May need to add more milk…depending on type of cheese you use…or is too soupy…take lid off crock pot last half hour and allow moisture to evaporate…serves 6 to 8.  Optional:  Add crumble bacon and stir in  or place on top.
