 This is one amazing crock pot recipe. Creamy and delicious spaghetti.

PLEASE NOTE – I used corn pasta which is why it turned out to be a little mushy – normally it is much better texture

Everyday at 1 pm PST/ 4pm EST Budget Savvy Diva posts a NEW RECIPE :) I might miss this time every now or then – but I know you understand

I have been making something similar but I bake mine in the oven. I am going to try your method next time–LOVE slow cooker recipes. I would like to offer a suggestion: add a can of cream of mushroom soup to the cheese mixture…talking about creamy goodness there! Lol, I am a huge mushroom fan so if you are not it may not be for you but we LOVE it :) Thanks :)

Do you think you can use ricotta instead of cream cheese?

You list chicken broth in the list of ingredients, but say chicken stock in the instructions. So which one is correct?

Can it be cooked on low for six hours and then put on high for the last hour?

Dear Ms. Budget Savey Diva, I suppose you will never forget me after I did not believe you could bake a cake using the cake mix and soda, lol. I am learning how to cook meals and I actually made another cake and gave it to my friend, he did NOT believe me when I told him what I used until I showed him your website, not to mention he now owes me $5.00. I was wondering, if you could do more slow cooker receipes. My mom bought me one and I really want to learn to cook for myself and the slow cooker seems an easy way to learn. Also, one last thing, since I do not own any cookbooks, I would like to ask if you have one and might I buy it (plus having you sign it would be a plus). Thank you so much for the cooking lessons and receipes, your the greatest!!!!! Signed a Budget Savey GUY :-)

Do you cook the noodles before putting them in the crockpot or put them in uncooked?

I think you put them in uncooked.
