Recipe Notes: The previous version of this recipe called for 12 ounces of pasta. Since standard boxes of pasta come in 16 ounces, I adjusted the recipe to account for this amount of pasta. I do not recommend added uncooked pasta to the slow cooker, as it could absorb too much liquid and become mushy. Nutritional values are based on one serving.

This recipe is perfect for any type of family or friend gathering. I can see this dish at Thanksgiving, Easter, a pot luck meal or even Christmas.
And no one can tell it is Gluten Free! What You Need:. Notice the cooking time on the noodles is only 6 minutes, this is to avoid them turning to mush. Extra stirring will break up the noodles. For the party I had 8 different topping options. The kids loved getting to pick what went on top of their mac n cheese. The hot dogs and bacon were the top 2 favorites! Hi Pam, I am going to try out your recipe this weekend.
No Boil Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese | An Easy Crock Pot Dinner
What a clever idea to add toppings for all the kids. I think my kids will also go bananas over the hot dogs and bacon. Great idea! Thanks for sharing. What brand of noodles do you use? I usually use tinkyada, those cook to full in 13 minutes, and I am not sure how long to cook them for this. I would not use Tinkyada past for this, rice pasta will fall apart. I was wondering the same. Not a fan of velveeta.
Can I use a substitute, maybe cream cheese so its creamier then just using more cheese? As to Velveeta — yuck! Waiting to hear if cream cheese could be substituted for part of the Velveeta. Have you ever made this faster than 3 hours? I would just bake it for 45 minutes in the oven instead of using the slow cooker. Same great taste in faster time!
I have a 6 qt crock pot. Are all the ingredients OK to still use in a bigger size vs the 3qt you used?
Ok guys I live alone and want to make this. Has anyone tried storing these leftovers? Freezer or fridge?
Gluten Free Crock Pot Macaroni and Cheese

Slow-Cooker Mac and Cheese
Stirring frequently. I hope this helps you. I found recipe online but I lost it. I buy it on amazon. They have Barilla GF pasta at our local Walmart. Indeed, it would be ridiculous to have to pre-boil the noodles! Thank you!!! This is great!!
You just have to use the right pasta, Lisa! I never have a problem reheating Barilla gluten free pasta. I am a big fan of the slow cooker making chili in mine today , and the family is a big fan of mac and cheese. Win win! I have a pot luck coming up at the end of the month. This will be great for the vegetarians in the bunch! I am assuming since I have a larger crock pot that doubling the recipe is not an issue. Hope that helps! Is there a sub for the can of evaporated milk? I do not like hormones in my milk and better yet prefer organic dairy. Suz, Evaporated milk is milk that has been cooked down to allow some of the water content to evaporate.
The concentrate is canned, and the result is a heavier tasting milk with a slightly toasted or caramelized flavor. So cute, Jennifer! And this is perrrrrfect for that.
