Ingredients Nutrition

  • 226.79 g uncooked macaroni (I used a 1/2 bag of Trader Joe's Brown Rice fusilli) or 226.79 g hearty pasta (I used a 1/2 bag of Trader Joe's Brown Rice fusilli)
  • 946.36 ml milk (I used skim cow's)
  • 1 egg (Alison's recipe calls for 2. I only had one in the house because we had company over the weekend and)
  • 946.36 ml shredded cheese (I used all cheddar)
  • 2.46 ml kosher salt
  • 2.46 ml black pepper
  • 4.92 ml dried mustard
  • 6 slice bacon (optional)


  1. Spray crock well with cooking spray. In a mixing bowl, whip egg and milk together. Stir in spices.
  2. Add cheese and noodles, and stir well to combine. Pour the mixture into the crock pot.
  3. It will be very liquidy.
  4. Cover and cook on low for 2-5 hours, or on high for 1-3. The cooking time will vary depending on what size crockpot you are using, and how quickly it heats and cooks. I was quite surprised at how quickly our pasta got fork-tender.

Made for Fall 09 PAC exactly per the recipe as given. This is really a great recipe for those busy days. The only thing I will do differently is add more cheese, or maybe even a sharp cheddar as we like a cheesier flavor. I am adding this to my potluck cookbook as well as it would be a great dish for occassions when kids are around.
