    Loved this recipe!! Needed to come up with a quick side dish to take to a potluck holiday dinner so chose this recipe. It was a huge hit! So easy to make. I did not add the full tablespoon of salt, just gave a good shake over the pot. I actually quadrupled the recipe and it turned out great, still fit in my large crock pot. Thanks for sharing, Pierce!

    A good mac and cheese recipe that was easy enough to pull together with my youngest's help. I doubled the recipe for leftovers, but only had one can of cheese soup, so I added one can of milk to make sure there was enough moisture. Still VERY cheesy! And, as I mentioned, my youngest was helping, so I didn't notice that the cheddar was supposed to go on top, so it got mixed in with everything else. I added some liquid smoke and lightly cooked broccoli, and we had a family hit! I was glad that this was something that could be made out of ingredients I already had in the house. Thank you!

    I doubled the recipe for a potluck at work. I cooked the macaroni the night before in salted water and left out the salt in the recipe. I took my 6-quart crock to work the day before, the ingredients on potluck day. It was much easier to carry that way. I melted the butter in the microwave, assembled the ingredients in the pot, set it on high and it was ready by lunchtime. It was a huge hit and there were no leftovers. Thanks for a real crowd pleasing recipe Pierce. Made and enjoyed for PAC Spring '09.

    This was very good. I didn't have shredded Velveeta and it's so soft it's hard to hand shred, so I cut the regular stuff into very small pieces. I would also suggest NOT adding the tablespoon of salt as the cheese soup and Velveeta are very salty on their own. My crock runs hot as well so I didn't need to cook for the full 90 minutes.
