Can you Cook Pasta in the Slow Cooker?

Yes, you can cook pasta in the slow cooker. But in this slow cooker recipe, I cooked the pasta in a separate pot. I usually cook my noodles in a broth based recipe. They seem to cook better and thoroughly.

Since Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti has a creamier base, I cooked the pasta in a separate pot. This ensure that the pasta is cooked according to the package or al dente.

Once the pasta is cooked, then I stir into the slow cooker with the other ingredients. This results in a delicious chicken spaghetti meal. This is the best comfort food.

You can also use the instant pot if you prefer.

Cheesy Chicken Crock Pot Spaghetti Variations:

  • Change the Cheese – Try velveeta cheese or other types of cheese in the cheese mixture.
  • Chicken – Substitute chicken thighs for the chicken breasts. You can even use chicken tenders. This would be easy to use leftover cook chicken or rotisserie chicken.
  • Pasta – Use any type of pasta you like- linguine, penne, or elbow. We usually use what we have on hand.
  • Rice – Try rice instead of pasta. We recommend white rice or if you are on a low carb diet, use cauliflower rice.
  • Vegetables – Add bell pepper to the onions. Red bell pepper or green bell pepper adds color to the mixture and flavor.
  • Rotel – We used diced tomatoes with green chilis. But you can easily get a can of Rotel or just use plain diced tomatoes.
