Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker combine the first four ingredients (through dressing mix). Add 4 cups water; stir to combine.

  • Cover and cook on high for 2 hours (pasta should absorb all the liquid by this time). Add cheese (do not stir). Cover and cook 5 minutes more. Stir gently to combine. If desired, add milk to reach desired creaminess.

Buffalo-Ranch Chicken Maracroni and Cheese:

Prepare as directed, except stir in 3 cups cooked chopped chicken with the cheese.

For Easy Cleanup:

Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
