Hi Dee, I saw this recipe over on Carlee's blog and had to check it out. Slow cooker meals are my favourite but I would never have thought to make macaroni cheese in one. I'm going to have a go although I won't be able to follow your recipe as tinned soup isn't a thing here, so I'm thinking a thick white sauce made with chicken stock? I will have a think.
