Crock Pot Mac N Cheese

So I know this week everyone is getting ready for Thanksgiving, so I had to share what I believe is the best mac n cheese ever!!! (This is my #1 request from the hubby during the holidays) I don't like to slave on the stove on Thanksgiving day I would much rather be watching the MACY's day parade. So why not use the crock pot???

2 C Elbow Macaroni
1 Lg can evaporated milk
1 C whole milk
1 stick margarine (melted)
2 C cheddar cheese grated
1/2 block of Velveeta cheese cubed
Salt and pepper to taste

Cook Macaroni and drain well add all ingredients in large bowl pour into crock pot. Add a little sprinkle of shredded cheese on top. Cook on low for 3 hrs.
