Ciao Bella Crock Pot Mac-N-Cheese

Anna Sciancalepore Antoniello


This is the easiest way to make Mac-N-Cheese. Every time I make it for the kids at a get together, the adults wind up digging in too. Total comfort food!

The nice thing is you can have it any time of year without turning the oven on.

Be sure to use white sharp cheddar instead of yellow, it tends to curdle and seperate. Doesn't change the flavor but doesn't look pretty.

This version is creamy and cheesy!
