Recipe Notes

It is extremely important that you grate your own cheeses for this recipe! Store bought grated cheese has a coating on it that prevents it from melting into a creamy cheese sauce.

Depending on the wattage of your slow cooker, the cook time may be slightly less or a bit longer. Check the pasta texture for doneness after 1 hour of cooking.
