This mac and cheese isn't something that you can let cook all day while you are at work. It only takes about 2 1/2 hours to cook. I loved the convenience of just dumping everything in the crock-pot a few hours before dinner. We both really loved the mac and cheese. It had a wonderful flavor. Feel free to mix up the cheeses – the combinations are endless!
