  1. I agree with Heather...this was a wonderful five star dish even through it did over cook the noodles and burn the cheese. My crockpot is a large family size and way too big for this size of dish. I've since bought a 4 qt. crockpot and will be making it again in it and reducing the time to 4 to 6 hours. I'll just remember to make it on a day when I can watch it closely to see how many hours my crock takes. Definitely 5 Stars!
