Slow Cooker Mac 'n' Cheese

My kids love mac 'n' cheese and lets face it so do I! I needed a side dish with chicken tenders the other night, but I didn't want to have to slave away in the kitchen and the slow cooker was a great solution.Even my husband who doesn't usually eat mac 'n' cheese had four servings!

  Recipe from Six Sisters' Stuff
2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
4 tablespoons butter
2 1/2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1 (10.75 oz) can condensed cheddar cheese soup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk (I used 1%)
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard (optional)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Boil the macaroni in water for six minutes and drain. In a medium saucepan, mix butter and cheese. Heat over medium high heat and stir until the cheese melts. Spray your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Combine cheese mixture, sour cream, soup, salt, milk, mustard (optional) and pepper in your slow cooker. Add the drained macaroni and stir again. Cook on low for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally.
