DIRECTIONS

  • Spray crock well with cooking spray. In a mixing bowl, whip egg and milk together. Stir in spices.
  • Add cheese and noodles, and stir well to combine. Pour the mixture into the crock pot.
  • It will be very liquidy.
  • 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.
