  • 12 ounces elbow macaroni (I used a high fiber version)
  • 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese (divided)
  • 1 cup minced cauliflower florets (approximately 1 medium head)
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 12 ounces evaporated milk (1 can)
  • 1/2 tablespoon yellow mustard (optional)


  • Add the pasta, 2 and 1/2 cups shredded cheddar, minced cauliflower, milk, evaporated milk, and yellow mustard to the slow cooker. Mix well.
  • Cook on low for 3-4 hours until most of the liquid is absorbed.
  • Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top, then cook another 15-30 minutes, until the cheese is melted and all the liquid is absorbed.
