Crock Pot Pumpkin Mac and Cheese




   This is my new favorite fall recipe. It is so easy to make with no prep work and it all goes in the crock pot to cook. Even the pasta will cook. It also is really delicious and is a nice spin on regular macaroni and cheese. Try making this to celebrate back to school or the fall season. Also, it is good for a Thanksgiving dish if you usually have traditional macaroni and cheese try this pumpkin spin on it and it's much easier to make.

Crock Pot Pumpkin Mac and Cheese

Ingredients:
- cooking oil spray
- 2 cups of milk
- 1  (29oz.) can of pumpkin (NOT PUMPKIN PIE MIX, JUST PUMPKIN)
-  1 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1/4 tsp. paprika
- 1/8 tsp. ginger
 - 1 (14 oz.) can of sweetened condensed milk
- 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 2 cups of uncooked elbow macaroni

Directions:
- Spray your crock pot even if you use liners spray the liners with the cooking spray very liberally.



Whisk milk, pumpkin, salt, pepper, paprika, ginger and condensed milk and pour into crock pot.



 Add the uncooked macaroni and the shredded cheese.


Gently stir to mix all ingredients.



Cook on LOW for 3-4 hours until the custard is set and the macaroni is tender.
 DO NOT COOK MORE THEN 4 HOURS OR IT WILL BURN!

  4. What size crockpot did you do this in? I have a small one and I want to make sure I adjust the measurements accordingly.

    1. I have to admit I have had the crockpot for a long time. It is a Rival Crock Pot. I believe it's 4 quart. I think when I bought it there were not a ton of sizes and I bought it at Walmart was a standard kind, as it was my first and has lasted over 10 years. It is either 3.5 quart or 4. I hope that helps. Let me know how it turns out. I would be happy to adjust some of the measurements and put them up here if it is needed.

  5. I plan to make (today) and cannot figure out if I am making enough for a crowd of 14 - what is the serving size on this recipe?

    1. I apologize for not seeing this comment sooner, as it apparently got lost in my massive email. I hope what you made worked out. For future reference this should make about 4 dinner servings so if you use it for a side dish you should be able to get 8 out of it. I hope you and your family enjoyed it.
