  1. Stir the condensed soup and water together in a slow cooker until smooth. Add the shell pasta and andouille sausage. Set the slow cooker to High; cook 2 hours, stirring frequently to prevent sticking.
  2. Once the pasta is tender, stir in the sour cream, Cheddar, and mozzarella until the cheeses melt. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove from heat, and allow to rest 15 minutes before serving.

The shells were mushy, I only cooked it an hour. It would have been better to cook the shells on the stove and add them in at the end. The flavor was pretty good.

This was excellent but I made a few changes. 1) I used 1.5c shredded Cheddar cheese and 1/2c Mozzarella. 2) I used half a kielbasa instead of a spicy sausage. 3) I didn't season at all, it was a...

I made this without the meat and found there weren't enough noodles so I boiled some more and added them after. The noodles that were cooked in the slow cooker were very mushy but I kind of lik...

Made exactly as directed. The noodles became total mush long before the allotted time. I didn't care for the sausage and since it was not in for very long, its flavor did not permeate the dish...
