This is very easy. And very very rich. Too rich even for the bf, who loves mac and cheese and cream of whatever soups . . .but he was complaining about the amount of creaminess and made me add in more pasta, for a total of 16 oz (I boiled the other 8 oz since I'd already served the mac n cheese by then). To be fair, I may have added more cheese than called for since I added nacho cheese sauce (which by the way, made it flavorful, so if you are wanting a less bland cheese sauce, it fit the bill) and some leftover spreadable cheese (yes, I was cleaning out the fridge, I admit.) along with the cheddar called for. However, I did only use 2 cups of cheddar and tossed in the rest of the cheese. This really does work in the crockpot, but you really cannot just set it and leave for your workday of 8-10 hours. You need to stir it--I stirred every half hour--and you can just put in the pasta directly into the crockpot. All told, the cheese was in the crockpot by itself for about an hour and a half, then the pasta was in there for about an hour. With more pasta--which you'd definitely have to boil separately bc there's not enough sauce to coat it, I don't think--this works for us. thanks for the recipe!
