This recipe is a family favorite in our house. My husband loves it just as much as the kids do.
He started off making the recipe years ago, and I knew if he was in charge of dinner that his homemade Mac and cheese with smoked sausage would be on the table.
I can't give him all the credit though I did work out a few things and added a few ingredients and now this recipe is perfect.

Recipe was a big hit at a football indoor tailgate party. I used Smoked Kielbasa for the sausage.
That is great to hear! We love it for our football parties too!
What can I use if I don't have any half and half?
You could use heavy cream or milk in its place.
You only use 2 cups of pasta? I measured 2 cups and it seems like not enough compared to the 4 cups and 16 oz of cheese!
Hi Jessica, yes it was 2 cups uncooked which made closer to 4-5 cups cooked. If you try this and find it to be too cheesy you can make some on the stove top and mix it in after cooking.
Hope you enjoy the recipe!
I live in the UK, do you know what we would call the processed cheese block? For the life of me I can't work it out.
It's basically the Velveeta cheese block!
I used jalapeño Cheddar smoked sausage for a more spicy kick. It was good.
I love that idea! I am a big fan of spicy food! Yum!
My kids would eat smoked sausage and mac and cheese every single day if I let them. Why did I never think of adding them together? Especially in a slow cooker! Great idea and I can't wait to try it out! (client)
