Got to use my food processor the grate cheese for the first time with this recipe. Cheese was a little soft, but it still did a great job.
Reminder that only the pasta and broth goes in the slow cooker to cook. Once the cooking is done you add the cream and cheese. I forgot to stir the pasta at the one hour mark and it still turned out fine. Texture was right on, no soggy or hard pasta.
I had some leftover bacon from the Hot Brown Sandwiches, so I got it super crisp and broke it into the pasta at the very end. Left out the vegetable saute and added a pretzel roll and some meatballs since my husband needs more protein in his meals. Really liked how the recipe turned out.
