I modified this recipe like many other users did. I made mine with 16 oz. of velveeta, and 10 oz. for regular orange cheddar. I did use the evaporated milk, and i did increase the salt just a little. I cooked my noodles a little bit. I didn't cook them all the way to al dente, but i was leary about putting them in uncooked. I boiled them probably for about 3 minutes. The mac n cheese came out awesome. Made it on a Sunday morning to eat with football in the afternoon. Was very rich, but we like it that way. If you don't, subs reg milk for evap milk. It's easy. Watch and stir though, it can burn on the bottom. I cooked the cheese, milk, egg and seasoning for about 30 min before adding my hot pasta. Then i cooked on High about 1.5 hours. Then i turned it to low. It was done and ready to eat, I just kept it warm. Next time I will add some pepper. That's it!

I liked how easy this was to prepare, but it was way too salty and almost too rich. I would recommend the following adjustments: * 1 c. condensed milk mixed with 1 c. regular milk * 1/4 to 1/2tsp. salt (if using Velveeta cheese) * 2 1/2 c. cheese (if using Velveeta) * reduce cook time to 1 hour after pasta is added

This turned out pretty good, but I added alot more to it. For one I did not cook the macaroni before I put it in the crock pot so the noodles did not get soggy. I also added some mozzerella cheese, parasean, and cream cheese. Put some worstchire sauce in it too with some diced onions and some dry mustard.The kids love it.

I made this recipe for a mid-day office pitch-in. I started it in the morning and thought it would be fine until lunch time. It had started to dry out by the time it was ready to be served. I would not recommend cooking for longer than 3 hours. I also did not cook my noodles and they were perfect. At the suggestion of another reviewer I used Velveeta instead of Cheddar. Overall a really good recipe. Just be careful of cooking time.

This is a very easy recipe, a snap, but very, very rich. My kids and my husband found it too rich. I plan to make it again, but modify it by cutting back a bit on the cheese and decreasing the evaporated milk, substituting with regular milk. Also, unlike other crock pot dishes, this cannot be left too long over 3 hours or it does begin to dry out.

If my husband could only have one meal before he died, this would be the choice for him. If I've got this in the slow cooker when he comes home his eyes light up and I get an extra big hug, LOL! I make with no changes. Love, love, love it!

The cheese was clumpy so my 6 year old wouldn't eat it but others thought it was wonderful and couldn't get enough. Tasted great although I did use sharp and extra sharp cheddar cheese. Probably only cooked for 2 hours after adding macaroni. Then as it remained in the crock pot until everyone finished eating the sides and bottom did get darker, not burnt, just a little brown and chewy. That I think is the best part, tasted wonderful, like the top of the macaroni and cheese you would cook in the oven. Thanks for the recipe, it reminds me so much of a local restaurant's mac and cheese, that closed several years ago. Will definitely be making this again.

"YUM" I made this for a carry-in and my co-workers loved it. They have asked me to bring it back numerous times. Some have asked for the recipe for their own get togethers.
