Because the only thing better than homemade mac and cheese is homemade SLOW-COOKER mac and cheese that basically makes itself! This is our ultimate recipe, packed with a full pound of cheese for the creamy, dreamy sauce everyone craves. Ground mustard and red pepper add just enough flavor for the grown-ups while still keeping the dish kid-friendly.

Ingredients

2
cups shredded Italian cheese blend (8 oz)
2
cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (8 oz)
2
eggs, slightly beaten

cups milk
1
teaspoon salt
3/4
teaspoon ground mustard
1/4
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
1/2
teaspoon black pepper
2
cups uncooked small pasta shells (8 oz)
