Can you cook fettuccine in a slow cooker?

I prefer mixing in cooked pasta but yes, you can cook fettuccine pasta in crockpot too. However, you would need to add more liquid such as broth or milk to allow it to cook/boil properly.

Variations for crockpot chicken fettuccine alfredo

-Broccoli- A classic addition. Add 1 cup small frozen broccoli florets in the last 30 minutes only or else they will become very soft and “mushy.”

-Mushrooms– Add 1/4 cup cream of mushroom soup and also add some stir-fried sliced mushrooms in the crockpot during the last 15 minutes.

-Shrimp– Add shrimp during the last 30 minutes and let it cook. However, I, personally, prefer stir-frying the shrimps with some Italian seasoning, garlic, salt and pepper first and then mixing it with everything else in the slow cooker during the last 15 minutes.

-Spinach– Add 3/4 cup frozen spinach that has been thawed and drained of excess water in the last 30 minutes.

-Tortellini– Replace fettuccine pasta with boiled three cheese tortellini.

-Bacon– Sprinkle 1/3 cup cooked crumbled bacon on top, just prior to serving.

-Cajun seasoning– Replace Italian seasoning with Cajun for a different flavor.

-Cheese– Add a variety of cheeses at the end such as parmesan, mozzarella and even cheddar.

-Spice– For a spicy kick, sprinkle some red chili flakes on top, prior to serving.

Tips and Techniques

-Adjust the amount of Italian seasoning, based on your preference.

-You must spray the inside of the slow cooker with oil to prevent sticking and burning.

-Cook time may vary, based on the brand of slow cooker you are using. For me, chicken was cooked through at 2.5 hours on low setting. Some slow cookers may require a little more time.

-Use flavored alfredo sauce such as roasted garlic alfredo because it has so much more flavor. Any brand of sauce can be used.

-Homemade alfredo sauce can be used instead of the store-bought version.

-Serving suggestion: You can either mix the boiled pasta with the crockpot alfredo sauce in the slow cooker at the very end like I did OR pour the sauce over boiled pasta.

-If the sauce is too thick, thin it out by adding some half and half, milk.

-Instead of fettuccine, any other pasta like penne or macaroni or spaghetti can be used.

– The alfredo sauce gets absorbed into the pasta and becomes thicker, as it cools. That’s why I think it tastes best when served fresh.
