  1. What a great idea of using slow cooker to make mac and cheese! And it turned out so delicious!

  2. Hi Miryam.

    I have a couple of questions; can an alternative milk be used as almond milk? Also, what’s your take on using brown rice pasta vs whole wheat pasta?

    Thanks for recipe, I’ve been looking for a mac n cheese that involves fresh broccoli. Pined it (:


    • Yes I think you could use almond milk. I have used brown rice pasta before and love it. I just haven’t found brown rice pasta elbow macaroni at a decent price and since we are not gluten free I used whole wheat pasta sometimes. Thanks for pinning my recipe!

  3. I never thought of making mac and cheese in a slow cooker… Normally I am just making chili in mine! Thanks for the awesome recipe, can’t wait to try it!

  4. Wow, Miryam, I’ve never seen a mac and cheese recipe done in a slow cooker before- Way to ‘hide’ the broccoli in there, this looks so good! :)

  5. Pinned to try. I am not a fan of gorgonzola–I am going to try feta!!

  6. This looks amazing! I’m so glad you posted this so we can enjoy soon. Saving and sharing! oxox

  7. I like Mac & Cheese anything. The Crockpot part is just a bonus. Great recipe.

  8. I don’t make enough recipes in my slow cooker, but I need to start. This macaroni and cheese would be a hit in my house. Usually, we do family dinner on Wednesday and my cousin and her baby come over. This would be a great way to treat them!

  9. Wow friend, this recipe looks so tasty. I have to agree with your husband I really love the fact that the broccoli was minced since it was much easier to eat that way. I have a slow cooker, but I’ve never made mac cheese in there. Have to try ;-)

  10. What a brilliant way to cook Mac and cheese, Miryam! Looks very scrumptious and healthy :)

  11. I had no idea you could make mac and cheese in the slow cooker! Very cool. And YES using the food processor to mince the broccoli is pure genius.

  12. YUM!!! I love mac and cheese!

  13. wow! thanks! i saw this in the afternoon and made it right away! it’s lovely!!!! my one-year-old is tucking in! next time i will put some walnuts or almonds in… what do you think?
    thanks for sharing anyway. i will kepp this recipe! :)

  14. This may be a silly question but do the noodles go in raw? I’m assuming yes since there’s 4 cups of milk. Thank you! Definitely want to try this.

  15. it smells amazing, however, it has become a mush. there is almost no macaroni shape left. most of the pasta got absorbed into the cheese sauce. I did use whole wheat pasta. I used 13oz extra sharp cheddar, not 16oz. This even happened about an hour and a half into cooking. i cannot figure out what i did wrong. I want to make it again, what can I do next time so this doesn’t happen?

    • It seems like the pasta got cooked a lot earlier than expected correct? I would perhaps decrease the cooking time. Just keep an eye on it if you can and when you see that the pasta is about to be ready add the broccoli. The broccoli takes very little time to cook since it is so fine so with 10 minutes it should be enough. I hope this helps a little!

  16. Do you add the cornstarch to cook with everything at first or with the broccoli at the end. Description confused me, excited to try this!!

    • With the broccoli at the end :-) I hope you like it!

    • Yeahhhh, your directions are incorrect and I had mixed EVERYTHING except the broc., like it said, hopefully it still comes out good. Please fix your directions and state that cornstarch is added with the broccoli at the end. Thanks.

  17. I was excited to try this meal as I’m in the process of cutting back on our meat consumption. I would definitely say you could easily use half of the cheese called for.  My husband wouldn’t eat much but my two year old packed it away! It’s definitely a great base recipe and I love the idea of cooking pasta & veggies on the crock pot…it just needs some tweaking and a lot less cheese. 

  18. If I were to make this on the stove top what would be your cooking times? And, like another commenter, I don’t much like gorgonzola, so what would you suggest?

    • You  can use any other cheese you like. This recipe is very versatile when it comes to swapping cheese. About the cooking time on a stop top, I don’t know but I would say at least 15-20 minutes.

  19. This recipe looked delicious and easy so I gave it a try! And it didn’t turn out well at all. The noodles were mushy and the taste wasn’t particularly good either.  I think any macaroni recipe requires a rue. 

    • I use arrowroot powder, same thing as corn starch that thickens the sauce to create a rue. What type of pasta you used? I might have to do the recipe again but for what I can remember with the time I used for the recipe mine turned out ok. Sorry yours was not good!!

  20. Can you use gluten free pasta?

  21. Delicious dish added for guests in the menu for dinner. Everyone loved this and had a great experience of learning recipes from your blog. Thanks

  22. Turned out great added ham and broccoli
