- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup crushed buttery crackers (about 20)
What to Do
- In a large bowl, combine noodles, 2 cups cheese, and remaining ingredients except crushed crackers, stirring well. Spoon into a 5-quart slow cooker that's been coated with cooking spray.

Mr. Food Test Kitchen Tip!
- Carefully remove lid at end of cooking so condensation doesn't run into casserole and make the crumbs soggy.
- Kick it up! You can also add a Southwestern flair to this casserole by substituting condensed cheddar cheese soup and cheddar cheese with habanero peppers for the cream of chicken soup and sharp cheddar cheese.
