Is it a crock pot or a slow cooker? I’ve always called it a crock pot but I see recipes all over the web that say slow cooker. Please, someone, educate me.
Regardless what it’s called, I love cooking in it. And now that school has started and I’m back to work, it sure makes cooking dinner simple.
And who doesn’t love Chicken Alfredo? I might be able to eat it everyday. Seriously. It’s one of those comfort foods that I love. Chicken, Shrimp, Broccoli, it doesn’t matter what’s in it. I love the creamy, cheesy sauce poured over noodles.
I was pretty excited to try this recipe but a little nervous about pasta in a crock pot. But I wanted to give it a try.
I found this recipe over on No. 2 Pencils.
This recipe had a great taste and I liked the chicken and sauce, but the noodles were horrible! I’ve never cooked pasta in a slow cooker before and now I know why. They were strange tasting, very pasty tasting and so not good. Ugh. So my advice, definitely skip the pasta step. Just cook the pasta separately and scoop the chicken and alfredo sauce over the noodles. That would be so much better.
Any tips for me on how to cook pasta in a crock pot? Did I do something wrong or is this what typically happens?
