  • Slow Cooker


  • 16 oz elbow macaroni
  • 3 cups milk
  • 8 oz velveeta cut into chunks
  • 1/4 cup salted butter cut into chunks
  • 3 cups cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated


  • Cook pasta in boiling water 3 minutes short of being al dente.
  • Place the cooked macaroni, milk, Velveeta, butter and cheddar cheese into a crockpot. Stir and top with Parmesan cheese. Set heat to Low and cook for 2 to 3 hours. Stir occasionally and check for doneness starting at the 2-hour mark.


  • This recipe started out as a much different recipe (scroll way down to the bottom, below the recipe card), so try the original version if you’d like!
  • This makes a large batch of mac and cheese! It will easily feed 8 hungry people as a main dish or 12 people as a side dish or party food. This is a great dish for pot lucks!
  • Add cooked ham or bacon pieces to add flavor and when serving as a main dish.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper just before serving!
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder would be a great addition to the cheese sauce.
