Crockpot Macaroni and Cheese

I am not a big fan of the crockpot and don't use it that much.

There is a site popping up all the time on facebook called 12 Tomatoes and they have
very interesting recipes.  (I heard this all comes out of a small New York City apartment!)

The other day they had a Crockpot Mac and Cheese and just for the fun of it I thought
I would try a New York City apartment!!!

The recipe:

10 oz. pasta, cooked  (I used traditional elbow macaroni noodles)
1/2 stick butter, cubed
1-12 oz. can evaporated milk
1-1/2 c. whole milk
3 c. cheddar cheese, grated
1 c. parmesan
1 c. romano
1 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1/2 t. nutmeg

cooking spray

Into crockpot place hot cooked noodles and cubes of butter stirring til butter melts.
Add the milks, cheeses, salt, pepper and nutmeg.  Stir til well blended.  Cover and
put on low heat for 3 hours.

Our review:  this was great!  I could not believe how easy.  The next time I make
this I will use monterrey jack cheese with jalapeno peppers......that would be so
yummy!  This is a keeper.

Note on the crockpot:  we are still soaking the crockpot as we have encrusted cheese
on part of the bottom and one side.....we have a hot spot and it really baked on the
cheese and pasta!
