    Perfect and not the run-of-the-mill crock pot meal OR 'mac-n-cheese' type meal. Sophisticated enough for company and simple enough for the kids! We all loved it and will make it time and time again! So easy too!

    Wrote a review but forgot to give it 5 stars. This is excellent, especially good for Gouda lovers.

    What a wonderful crock pot meal! This is so good. I will be making this one again. Made for ZWT4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.

    I wish I could give this 100 stars. Easy to put together, tasty and very well-balanced. I didn't think I'd like it as much as I did. DH raved and he doesn't even like tomatoes! I doubled it and it's a good thing I did 'cause we ate 'til we nearly burst! One of the best recipes on the tour! Made for Daffy Daffodils ZWT4
