Mac & Cheese to Serve a Crowd

I make this recipe often for parties because Mac & cheese is a dish that everyone loves. This version has great flavor and texture. It works well as side dish or even as a main course with a big salad. The best part is that it can be prepped ahead and then combined in a slow cooker with very little effort. Enjoy!

Mise en place

6 cups pasta, uncooked (~1.5 lbs)

6 Tbl unsalted butter

16 oz Velveeta cheese, cubed

2 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

2 tsp Dijon mustard

2 cups milk (1 pint = 16 oz)

1 cup heavy cream (1/2 pint = 8 oz)

2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

  • Cook pasta in salted boiling water for 5 minutes, drain and place in the slow cooker or chill for later assembly.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the pasta and stir until well combined.
  • Cook on high for 1-2 hours (or until melted through) stirring every 15 min
  • Adjust the seasoning to taste.
