Slow-Cooker Bacon Mac and Cheese Ingredients
Maggie Shi
  1. Spray a 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Add the pasta shells.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the condensed Cheddar cheese soup, whole milk, evaporated milk, melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, mustard powder and black pepper. Stir in the shredded Cheddar, shredded Monterey jack, garlic and half the cooked bacon.
  3. Carefully pour the cheese mixture over the pasta and gently stir until all the pasta is coated.
  4. Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and cook for another 2 1/2 hours.
  5. Stir in the reserved cooked bacon and serve garnished with sliced scallions if desired.
