Slow Cooker Creamy Spaghetti Recipe

Spaghetti is one meal my whole family will eat.  Between my love of spaghetti and my obsession for my slow cooker, this was the perfect dinner! The best part? Most of these ingredients are probably already in your kitchen cabinets and the noodles cook right in the slow cooker (no need to cook the noodles beforehand!).

Serves: 10-12

    I love this recipe. It's so easy and I just assembled it in 3 minutes. My husband is in the Army and his schedule is always changing; this allows me to just throw it together and it will still be warm for him when he comes home. I added some fresh garlic and spices as well. I know he will love it!! :)
  2. If I cook this on low all day do I just need to add all 3 jars of sauce at once and then stir when I get home (11 hours later) and add the broth then? I have such a hard time finding long cooking recipes that don't dry out but I really think my family would love this one! Love your site!
    • 11 hours is a little long. I put everything in and it was done after 4 hours on low. I think if you were to leave it in that long it would burn on the sides and start to stick to the sides :( I still had to add some hot water at the end because it was very sticky. I guess that's why we are suppose to wait to add the broth huh? I might have used too much noodles too :( dosn't matter though because despite my trial and errors..... I have to say that it was very yummy!!!! My family ate it up, spaghetti is one of our household favorites! and this recipe is very tasty!!

    I made this tonight. I had used reduced fat cream cheese and whole wheat pasta. It didn't come out as creamy as I thought. I don't know if my modifications were the cause. I just added extra reduced fat cream cheese and it turned out well. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
  4. So we decided to make this on Wednesday.... and I wasn't keeping my hopes up 'cuz for some reason its a hit or miss for me when I cook. But as we speak, the boyfriend brought home the ingredients and we're making it again, LOL. We looooooved it! I tweaked it the first time only because we didn't have all the right ingredients (I didn't have jars of the same sauce, I ended up using Trader Joe's vodka sauce in the bottom, and mixing in marinara with burgundy wine and I forget what else. Anyway, who cares? It was delicious and I fully expect this to be a 5 star recipe, not 1.5???

    This looks great! Do you think that I could keep the entire recipe amounts the same except for the sauce? I only have 1 big jar of 45oz sauce which is one jar short. Will it come out too dry or sticky? Could I add a little more broth or water? Thanks!
