When it comes to boxed macaroni, I'm a bit of a snob. It's Kraft or Annie's, or it won't be eaten. However, when I'm looking for a good, having-a-bad-day-and-don't-care-what-I-eat sort of meal, my crock-pot mac is a great way to go.
2 cups elbow macaroni
4 (yup, four) cups shredded colby jack cheese, divided
12 ounces evaporated milk
1 1/2 cup milk (don't stress going skim here. I mean, you can, but... four cups of cheese. C'mon.)
salt and pepper to taste
Boil the macaroni for 5 minutes, then drain. Grease your crockpot with cooking spray. Reserve 1 cup of cheese and mix the rest of the ingredients in the pot. Top with remaining cup of cheese.
Cook on high for 3 hours- remove lid for the last 1/2 hour.
We're topping it off with some bacon tonight, but this is a great side dish to bring for holiday gatherings. Hope you enjoy it!
