More About This Recipe
  • Cooking dinner doesn't have to be a big deal. Easy does it with this fettuccine Alfredo recipe. Come on -- dinner is served. Sometimes you get home and want a nice fresh-cooked meal but don’t have the time to devote to cooking. Well, actually you have time -- there are still 2 hours till dinner -- you just don’t want to spend it cooking, right? So that’s where this awesome Slow Cooker Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo comes in. It takes care of itself in the slow cooker, and you only need to give it attention 3 quick times during the whole cooking process. The end result is a super creamy, thick Alfredo sauce that tastes great and fills you right up on a busy weeknight. The key to this recipe is buying the refrigerated fresh pasta instead of the boxed dried stuff. The fresh pasta cooks quicker and doesn't need as much moisture to soften up. And when you slow-cook it in cream like this, the cream really soaks into the pasta and gives it a super luscious texture and flavor. Hungry yet? Super creamy, super easy, and super comforting!
