Pasta cooked al dente in a creamy cheese sauce…in the crock pot! This mac and cheese is topped with bread crumbs for added crunch and flavor.
Last month I shared this recipe for Crock Pot Mac and Cheese over at Mom It Forward. In case you missed it over there, I wanted to share it with you here!
My crock pot and I are pretty good pals. We see each other on a regular basis and I can count on it to always be a good friend and help me make dinner. I love using my crock pot! I especially love using it on days when I can’t seem to get life in order and stay organized enough to get dinner on the table.
Days like these call for a delicious crock pot recipe. This Crock Pot Mac and Cheese is cheesy and creamy with a little bit of crunch from the bread crumbs on top. The kids love it as much as my husband and I love it! It’s a winning dinner for the whole family.
