If your family is like mine and could eat mac & cheese every night of the week, then you’ve definitely gotta try this super easy, slow cooker version!  Made with lots of cheese, and savory, delicious bacon, this mac & cheese will definitely be a new favorite with your family.

Other than cooking the bacon before-hand, there is very little prep that goes into this recipe.  It’s great to throw together when you have multiple things going on at home, and don’t have time to be standing in front of the stove.  A few stirs while the pasta cooks really helps the cheeses melt nicely.  Once the pasta is nearly at al dente, you’ll then add in the spices, and cook for another 30 minutes.
