Question Crockpot Mac & Cheese Question

I found two recipes that are confusing me...

No Boil Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese - Cookies and Cups

https://www.familyfreshmeals.com/201...nd-cheese.html

One calls for "raw/uncooked" pasta, and cooking for 2-3 hrs. The other one calls for "cooked" pasta, and also cooking for 2-3 hrs.

Wouldn't the recipe using the "cooked" pasta come out mushy since the pasta is already "cooked"?

The precooked pasta recipe.. According to the single, "I made this" comment, the texture was very good..

I often check comments if something strikes me as odd... Unfortunately, most comments fall under the "I need to make this" area... I enjoy comments from people who have done so best..

I have made mac and cheese in a dutch oven - sort of similar to a crock pot and it came out well with uncooked noodles. The recipe include evaporated milk and was on the custardy side when done. it was pretty good but as I recall looked absolutely horrid right through the cooking process until the very end when it came together nicely.


This recipe is similar to the version I have made although I would spice it up a bit...
