I made this today, intending to put most of it in the freezer for a go-to meal later on. I tasted it after it cooked for about 1 hour in the crock pot and it just didn't taste right to me. The texture was off--not creamy enough. I ended up adding salt, some milk for creaminess, and a few cubes of velveeta light cheese. It helped, but the texture is still a little off and if I make it again I will decrease the amount of corn starch.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray a 4-quart slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. In a small saucepan, heat the mustard, cornstarch, pepper and evaporated milk until warmed through, whisking occasionally. Stir in the cheese.
  2. Pour the macaroni into the slow cooker. Top with the cheese mixture and stir. Cover and cook on low for 1-2 hours or on high for 30 minutes.
