Slow cooker macaroni cheese

This is a fab no-hassle way to make macaroni cheese. You may find the timings vary a bit between slow cookers. The most important thing is not to let the pasta overcook and turn to mush.

Ingredients

Method

  1. Put the macaroni and both types of cheese in a slow cooker.

  2. Pour over the evaporated milk and add 700ml/1¼ pint of water. Season with pepper and stir.

  3. Cover and cook on high for 1½ hours, or until all the cheese has melted and the pasta is almost tender. Stir really well, then cover and cook for a further 15 minutes, or until the pasta is tender but holding its shape. Serve immediately.

  4. Serve immediately (The longer the pasta sits, the softer it will become.)
