Slow Cooker Macaroni Cheese

Mac ‘n’ cheese is real comfort food, brilliant for supper on a cold winter evening. This is so easy to make (and no need to make white sauce).


350g macaroni pasta
600ml whole milk
50g butter, cubed
50g soft cheese
100g mature cheddar grated, plus extra to serve
20g parmesan or vegetarian alternative, plus extra to serve


  1. Pour boiling water over the pasta and drain, then put everything in a slow cooker and stir well. Season, cover and cook on low for one hour. Stir again, put the lid back on and cook for another 30 mins until the pasta is cooked and the sauce has reduced enough to coat the macaroni.
  2. Leave the lid off and reduce for the last 10 mins if you need to or add a splash more milk. This will depend on the size of your slow cooker and the brand. Serve with extra cheese.
