Who doesn’t like mac-n-cheese? This simple dish of macaroni and cheese sauce has become a crowd pleaser — especially if you have kids — at many an Easter meal. Below is a simple, creamy version you can make in your slow cooker, along with some variations I like to do to mix things up and possibly even “adult-ify” this mainstay.



  • 12 oz macaroni, shells, spirals or your favorite pasta
  • 3-4 cups shredded cheddar
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • salt,pepper & nutmeg to taste

Directions for Mac-n-Cheese

  1. Add all the ingredients to your crock pot and cook on low for 2 hours or until the pasta is done.


  • Need to lower the glycemic index so someone with diabetes can eat it? Choose whole-grain or protein-enriched pasta. Or, increase the protein of the dish by adding in some meat, as suggested below.
  • Add in sliced sausage, hot dogs or Vienna sausage.
  • Drop the nutmeg and add in mustard instead.
  • Toss in some cooked meat balls.
  • Add in some chopped garlic and fresh basil for a pesto-inspired version of mac-n-cheese.
