I made this slow cooker mac & cheese for company dinner about a week ago. And it was a success! It tasted just like homemade baked mac & cheese without the hassle of whisking milk and melting cheese and adding a roux. Next time I might mix in some steamed veggies and add some toasted breadcrumbs on top...
Yes. I know there is a giant piece of parsley in the middle of the photo. I got a little carried away with garnishing.
