    Directions

    1. Generously butter the bowl of a 6-qt. slow cooker.
    2. Add uncooked pasta, whole milk, evaporated milk, mustard, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder to the slow cooker. Drop cream cheese by large spoonfuls into the bowl. Stir to combine. (Pro Tip: Evaporated milk keeps the sauce from separating, and gives it a deliciously creamy texture.)
    3. Cover slow cooker and cook on high for 1 hour. Stir, then cook until the pasta is al dente, about 1 more hour.
