Yummy! Yummy! Yummy! Our family (including our 18 month old daughter) love mac and cheese. I made this a lower fat recipe with a few changes. I used whole wheat pasta, 2% sharp cheddar cheese, fat free evaporated milk, and 1% milk. It was super yummy! I'm sure the whole fat recipe is really good, but we need the lower fat one. Thanks for sharing!

This recipe is so simple and wonderful! Slow cooking comfort food on a cold day....it's not only delicious food for the body, but food for the soul. I will not only make this again, but will also recommend it to my friends. Thanks for sharing.

My own macaroni and cheese recipe has been unbeatable with this family until now. This beat mine hands-down. Creamy and easy and just perfect. I guess mine is out the window now. Thanks for posting.

I didn't get a chance to try this fresh, but my boyfriend said it was so awesome. The leftovers heated up awesome, I can't wait to try it right out of the crock-pot.

A great side dish! I followed the directions exactly. It was a tad dry for me, so next time I will increase the milk to 2 cups and maybe decrease the cooking time to 4 hours. It was a breeze to put together. I love not having a lot of dishes to wash up! Thanks for sharing this with everyone.

Wow! This was amazing! My family loved it. I've never made, nor had homemade macaroni and cheese. So much better than the boxed kind! I did two things differently. I used mild cheddar cheese (mellow flavor, I'm not fond of sharp and I enjoyed this) and I used radiatore pasta. Thanks for such a wonderful recipe!

I've made this recipe several times now. My family loves it! I've tried several homemade mac & cheese recipes, and none ever came out right - unti this one! It's great for those hot days when you just don't want to turn on the oven or stand over a hot stove. I use fat-free evaporated milk, 2% cheese, and 1/8 tsp mustard powder (sometimes) to kick it up a little. It's soooo yummy. Thanks for a great recipe!

This is the best crockpot recipe for macaroni and cheese! I make a double recipe and it works like a charm! Mine only takes 5 hours (sometimes 4 1/2) on low in the crock pot.

I gave this recipe Two Stars because it was easy to put together but it didn't turn out for me and I am an experience crockpot user. The Macaroni and Cheese turned out try, burnt on the bottom and not creamy at all. My three children didn't even eat theirs after the first bite.

I made this yesterday and for some reason my cheese and noodles never got to the "creamy" stage:( The taste was there but I dont know why they didnt mesh. Oh well, it still tastes yummy!
