Easiest Mac and Cheese. ever.

Many of friends and family know that I just LOVE my slow cooker!! I cook whatever I can in there, not only is it easy peasy and tasty – it helps keep my electricity usage down as well!

Here is a super simple, very tasty recipe for mac and cheese in your slow cooker!

8 ounces elbow macaroni (about 2 cups)
butter, for greasing the slow cooker
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese or a Cheddar blend
4 tablespoons butter, meltedCook the macaroni following package directions. Drain in a colander.
Generously butter the sides and bottom of a 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker. Combine the macaroni with the remaining ingredients in the slow cooker and blend well. Cover the slow cooker and cook on LOW for 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours, stirring a few times.
TIP: Did you know if you mix 2/3 cup non-fat dry milk and 3/4 cup water together, you get 1 cup of evaporated milk substitute?
