just an fyi for anyone who is going to be making this. I am the submitter ,and when I make it I do make it with penne pasta.something a little thicker than elbows.And that way it wont be as mushy.You also have to watch it according to how fast your crockpot cooks it.mine is done in 3 hours ,so 4 to 5 hours is a guide. And if using elbows it will be done sooner.just wanted to share some tips :)

I have tried slow cooker mac and cheese only one other time in my life and it was horrible...this was the total opposite of that! The cooking times are off though...mine only took about 2-1/2hrs. to cook, so keep an eye on it and be sure to stir it every so often, as instructed. I halved the recipe, and used my 2qt. slow cooker, which was perfect. I used mostly Light Velveeta(R) w/ some shredded sharp cheddar added b/c I have bad luck w/ melting cheddar cheese, lol. This was perfectly thick and creamy. Oh, I don't know if this makes any difference, but I also used Barilla(R) Elbow Macaroni (the ones w/ the ridges), they worked out great in this! I can't wait to play around w/ the cheeses, spices and trying it w/o the broccoli too. Thanks for sharing this YUMMY, EASY recipe, Linda...it's a keeper! :)

No fuss, that's the way I like it. Really minimum prep work. Place ingredients in crock pot, check on occasionally and it will get ready for you. I used fresh broccoli microwaved al-dente. My crock pot runs hot so at 2 hr 30 min the pasta was done. Let run on warm another 15 minutes. It will be a regular potluck dish I bring to church. Everyone loves macaroni and cheese!
