This is my version of this popular dish. I use heavy cream, evaporated milk and sour cream for some seriously creamy comfort... add a bit of crispy bacon and I'm in heaven. I've actually left this in the crockpot on warm for up to 5 hours and it works out fine. You just have to under cook the pasta a bit and double or even triple the sauce.
