Add this cheesy chicken spaghetti recipe to your slow cooker repertoire and your family and friends will LOVE you for it! The easy recipe below is one of my go-to dishes when I'm looking for total comfort food. Spaghetti and chicken covered in a creamy cheese sauce with a touch of spice — how can you lose?
For the recipe below, all you need to do is add everything except the spaghetti into your slow cooker and wait. You cook the spaghetti in a separate pot, according to the directions on the box. But you don't have to limit yourself to spaghetti. Any pasta will work! This is also a great way to use up any leftover pasta. Cream of mushroom soup, cheddar cheese, and cream cheese add a fantastic creaminess, while the jalapeno adds just the right amount of spice. Add the pasta and more cheese at the end, and you are ready to serve. So what are you waiting for? Print the recipe below and make it now!
