    I can attest that this recipe is amazing because it’s exactly the same recipe that I use… which is actually an adaption of Paula Deen’s Creamy Macaroni and Cheese recipe. I leave out the eggs that she uses and it makes the recipe the same as this one. If this is also an adaption of Paula ‘s recipe, you might want to give credit to her as well. If not, nice job coming up with this one on your own! It’s definitely my favorite :-)

      This is a recipe that I actually came up with after trying several crockpot mac and cheese recipes. I’ve actually never even seen Paula Dean’s recipe. Do you also put the fresh garlic in your recipe? It really is delicious! Thanks!

        I haven’t made it with garlic yet because I think the kids might rebel, but that sounds a amazing!

    How much does this make, servings and size? I would like to try this out for a group. Sounds delicious.

      And also, this may be a dumb question…but is 2 cups of the pasta measured out by cups or are you talking about 16 ounces of pasta? I think 16 ounces of pasta likely wouldn’t fit into 2 cups…not sure though. I just need to know so I can figure out nutrition information and also so I can make it correctly :)

        It’s 2 cups of uncooked pasta… not the entire 16 oz.

        I used the whole 16oz box of large shells and had plenty of sauce to go with it. I was a little unsure about the nutrition value as well as I try to count my calories. I just tried going with Paula Deans recipe (even though she uses elbow macaroni). She estimated 133g (which is about 1/2c) is 233calories, hope that kind of helps :)

      It makes enough for about 4 people.

        Hi! I’m trying this recipe for the first time–I work nights and my husband gets home from work around 7, so I’m trying out crock pot dinners. This will be my fourth dinner:) I did add some chopped onion to the butter, I hope that it works! I am concerned that maybe I messed up with the cheddar, however. I melted it as directed with the butter and it turned into a globule of cheese! Is this how it should be, or did my adding onions to the butter mess it up? Am hoping it distributes evenly as it cooks in the crock. Thank you, this recipe looks great!
