Start with a creamy chicken sauce then add pasta and cheese. Easy and cheesy this Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken Rotini is a family favorite
If you know me then you know when I cook the more cheese the better. This Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken Rotini is so creamy and so cheesy, you are going to love it. I usually don’t do a lot of pasta in the slow cooker since you have to cook it on the stove top. I am usually a dump and go slow cooker kinds gal. This recipe really changed my mind though. I started with my chicken and a creamy base. Let it all cook and then boiled some pasta about half an hour before dinner. Drained it then add it to the slow cooker with some cheese. It only needed to cook for about 20 more minutes then dinner was ready. Boiling the pasta on the stove top didn’t take that much work so I still felt like this was a simple slow cooker meal that I can put together quickly for my family.
