Crockpot Mac and Cheese

Hey! This is Kathleen, Beth's daughter. We have been getting lots of snow in Oklahoma this week, so on our snow day, we found this recipe on Pinterest and tried it. Read my changes below!

Crockpot Mac and Cheese

Throw the following ingredients into your crockpot on Low. Start checking for doneness at 1.5 hours. (side note: boil the macaroni for a few minutes first for optimal results)

12-ounce can evaporated milk
8-ounces cream cheese
16-ounces elbow macaroni **See notes below
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Place all ingredients in the crockpot (the order does not matter). *Kathleen's change: turn the crockpot on to HIGH and start checking/stirring around 1.5 hours in. 

Notes: The original recipe suggested to boil the noodles for several minutes and draining them before placing them in the crockpot. We added raw noodles and the result was quite starchy. So, I recommend boiling the noodles for 5-minutes and then lowering the cooking time.
