RECIPE: Easy Crock Pot Mac and Cheese

September 19, 2014

I’m excited to share another recipe from the menu that we had for Lilly’s birthday party! Mac and cheese is one of Lilly’s FAVORITE foods (if not her absolute favorite food) and so we KNEW we had to have some at her party.

I had wanted to try a mac and cheese recipe in the crock pot, because I knew it would be best for keeping it warm and fresh during the party. I looked around online, in cookbooks, and Pinterest and found this recipe and knew it sounded delicious so I decided to adapt it a little and give it a try!

There is pretty much nothing even remotely healthy about it… but it is delicious. So, heed that warning. 馃檪

Here’s the recipe. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 box uncooked pasta shells
  • 4 tbs butter
  • 2 1/2 cup grated mixed cheese I used the "fiesta" blend
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 10.75 oz can condensed cheddar cheese soup
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup Organic fat free milk
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  1. Spray your crock pot with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Boil the pasta shells in water for six minutes and then drain. You want the shells to be soft, but not fully cooked.
  3. Mix butter and cheese over medium heat in a saucepan. Add in the cheese and stir until it is all melted.
  4. In your crock pot, combine the cheese mixture, greek yogurt, soup, salt, milk, and pepper. Add drained pasta. Stir it all together really well.
  5. Cook in crock pot for 2 to 2 1/2 hours on low, stirring occasionally.
  6. Enjoy!
