  1. This is a really yummy recipe but I followed these measurements and it just barely fed two of us so would not feed four people and we are not big eaters.

  2. We had this for dinner tonight. Was so yummy! We doubled the recipe and didn’t put garlic in it. And barbecued the bacon before cutting it up. Cooked it for 2 hours on high

  3. I made this the other night for dinner but I doubled it and cooked it for a little bit longer I also used minced garlic instead and if was amazing even the kids loved it

    Made this tonight for my 12 yr old son & “Thumbs Up”
    Absolutely loved it & I myself wished I was having some too(had to have leftovers from previous night instead)
    Going to do again but double recipe & might add some chicken too so we all can enjoy
    Cooked exactly to recipe…..Perfect

  5. Made this primarily for the kids Miss 18 really loved it… Easy and more flavorful compared to store bought variety…

  6. This is so good. Mainly cooked it for the kids but I loved it too. I doubled it and added some hidden veg. Mine didn’t seem to thicken in the slow cooker i so put it on the stove for a bit and turned out great. Will cook again!

    This is absolutely yummy I used 2 cups of small spirals, cooking cream instead of milk and I put in 3 teaspoons of minced garlic. This only served 2 people so will definitely be doubling the ingredients next time

    I made this tonight in my 1.5L slow cooker. I added smoked paprika at the start and then some left over tinned veggies for the last 15 minutes. Was very nice though I might try a stronger cheese next time. I do agree with others that it really is only a 2 person serving
