- quick recipe of the week -

Happy Monday to everyone! Hope you guys had a fabulous weekend! Over the weekend, I actually stumbled upon a great blog called, Family Fresh Meals, that has a ton of amazing, family friendly recipes! You should definitely check it out! Today's recipe comes from that blog...and, of course, it's a crock pot recipe...cause I absolutely love using my crock pot! Anytime I can have dinner ready for me as soon as I walk in the door, I'm all for that!

Crockpot Macaroni and Cheese
1 box (13.25oz) of rotini, shell or macaroni pasta
4 Tbs butter
4 cups shredded cheese (I used a Colby-Jack blend, but Cheddar would work great too)
4 oz cream cheese, at room temperature, cubed
1.5 cup of milk
-12 oz evaporated milk
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp paprika

In crock pot mix together butter, cream cheese, milk, evaporated milk, sour cream, salt, pepper and paprika. Try to stir out as many lumps as possible. Stir in UNCOOKED noodles. Top with shredded cheese. (DO NOT mix at this point. The cheese will melt and make it’s way through the noodles. Cover and cook on LOW for 3-4 hours.

Ever never been much of a mac'n'cheese girl, but Tim and Maile? They're gonna love this.
