You can count on the slow cooker to make these delectable pasta dishes for you. 

Creamy Mac and Cheese

1. Crockpot Mac and Cheese

Let’s kick things off with the ultimate comfort food: mac and cheese. 

This is mac and cheese the way country singer Trisha Yearwood does it, and it’ll knock your socks off. 

Filled with 20 whopping ounces of sharp cheddar cheese, this is a ridiculously creamy and cheesy mac and cheese that’s so good, it’s impossible to stop at one serving.

2. Slow Cooker Lasagna

This lasagna takes 4 to 5 hours to cook, and 4 to 5 minutes to devour. It’s a hearty and decadent dish guaranteed to disappear in a jiffy. 

With layers of meat sauce, cheese sauce, lasagna noodles, and grated cheese on top, it’s not difficult to understand why it’s so outrageously delicious.

3. Crockpot Tortellini

This tortellini dish is fully loaded with sausage, spinach, tomatoes, and cream cheese. It’s thick, creamy, and bursting with flavor.

It tastes like you worked hard on it, but you’ll hardly work on it at all.

In fact, just dump the ingredients in the pot, set it, and forget it. It’ll be ready when you are.

Pro-tip: you can transform the dish into soup by adding more broth.

4. Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo

Chicken Alfredo is another mouthwatering pasta dish that can turn any frown upside down.

A plate of this hearty dish will drive all your problems away.

And it’s one of those Crockpot chicken breast recipes you’ll turn to again and again.

Fortunately, with this recipe, you can whip up this dish anytime, with very minimal effort. 

5. Crockpot Cheesy Rotini

Perfectly firm and al dente rotini noodles are coated in a thick sauce made of cream, milk, cream cheese, cheddar, mozzarella, and sour cream, and sprinkled with parmesan to boot.

This is what I call cheese for days. My mouth is watering just staring at it. I think I know what I’m having for dinner!

6. Crockpot Lasagna Ravioli

It’s just like lasagna, but instead of lasagna noodles, you’ll use cheese-filled ravioli. It’s fun to switch things up from time to time!

I love the use of ravioli in this recipe because it’s like you’re getting two types of pasta in one dish.

It’s just as meaty and creamy as traditional lasagna, but with an added layer of cheese. 

7. Crockpot Million-Dollar Pasta

It’s called million-dollar pasta for a reason, and the reason is that it’s extremely rich and decadent.

Loaded with perfectly seasoned ground beef, marinara, and a medley of cheeses, the million-dollar pasta tastes like baked macaroni on steroids.

8. Crockpot Italian Sausage Rigatoni

Any pasta dish with Italian sausage is a huge hit in my book, and this one is no exception.

If you’re looking for more excitement in your everyday meals, this one-pot rigatoni recipe is for you. It’s the smoky and meaty dish that’s missing in your life.

Coated with a rich, tomato-based sauce loaded with mozzarella and parmesan, this might just be your newest favorite dish.

9. Slow Cooker Pasta e Fagioli Soup

If you enjoy Olive Garden’s Fagioli soup, good news! This copycat recipe tastes just like the real deal. 

Ditalini, sausage crumbles, veggies, and beans swim in a tomato-based broth loaded with cheese.

One slurp of this comforting soup will warm your body and soothe your heart and soul.

10. Slow Cooker Lo Mein

If you’re craving Chinese takeout but don’t want to get out of the house, this slow cooker lo mein recipe is the solution.

Lo mein noodles, chicken, veggies are bathed in a ridiculously flavorful sauce, all for you to enjoy.

This is Asian comfort food at its best, and it’s surprisingly easy to make.

11. Slow Cooker Baked Ziti

Hearty, meaty, and cheesy: these are the perfect words to describe this Crockpot baked ziti.

It has everything you can ask for in a traditional baked ziti. 

Al dente pasta noodles? Check. Perfectly seasoned ground beef? You bet.

Rich and flavorful pasta sauce? Definitely. 

Ooey-gooey mozzarella? U-huh!

The only difference is, this one is so much easier to make.

12. Crockpot Spaghetti and Meatballs

We can’t have a list of delicious pasta recipes without spaghetti meatballs, now, can we? This is as classic as it gets!

In case you don’t have a recipe for spaghetti and meatballs yet, you’ve just found the one.

Lazy home cook tip: don’t worry about making meatballs from scratch.

Just use frozen, store-bought meatballs, and the results will be just fine.

13. Slow Cooker Pesto Mozzarella Chicken Pasta

All it takes are chicken breast, pasta, mozzarella, and a jar of pesto to make a scrumptious dinner.

This chicken pesto is ridiculously easy to make, but also extremely full of flavor. 

The rich, nutty, and herby sauce coats and flavors both the pasta and the chicken so well. The stringy mozzarella makes it even more delightful.

14. Crockpot Pizza Pasta Casserole

Pizza and pasta in one? I won’t say no to that!

How can anyone resist this thing of beauty? It’s meaty spaghetti at the bottom, and cheesy pizza on top.

It’s a phenomenal mash-up you didn’t know your life needed.

Try it once and you’ll crave it again and again. Good thing it’s a breeze to make.

15. Slow Cooker Chicken Tetrazzini

This dish is a mix of spaghetti pasta, chicken, mushrooms, and a sauce loaded with cream cheese and mozzarella. 

There’s nothing like the combination of savory chicken, earthy mushrooms, and a cheesy sauce. I guess the diet starts tomorrow.

16. Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

If you think you’ve already had the best chicken noodle soup, wait until you try this.

Broken spaghetti noodles, shredded chicken, and colorful vegetables swim in a ridiculously flavorful broth seasoned with a variety of herbs.

This soup will not just be eaten, it will be inhaled. It’s just that delicious.

17. Slow Cooker Tuna Noodle Casserole

Transform a boring can of tuna into a scrumptious casserole!

Brimming with mushrooms, vegetables, cheese, and tuna, your egg noodles have never tasted better.

As a bonus, the casserole is topped with crushed potato chips, giving it a fantastic crunchy and salty outer crust.

18. Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Thick egg noodles are coated in a creamy sauce and loaded with tender and juicy beef and earthy mushrooms. 

What’s not to love about beef stroganoff? It’s a meal on its own, and it’s seriously delicious.

It’s holiday-worthy but easy enough to make any time a craving strikes. That’s what I like to call a total package.

19. Crockpot Chicken Gnocchi Soup

If you’ve never had gnocchi before, take this as the sign to try it… today, if possible.

Gnocchi dumplings are made of mashed boiled potatoes and flour, giving them a unique, chewy texture. 

Accompanied by chicken, veggies, bacon, and a thick and creamy broth, this gnocchi dish will surely blow your tastebuds away.

20. Slow Cooker Beef and Noodles

This is more than just your average noodle soup.

Egg noodles loaded with melt-in-your-mouth beef and bathed in a ridiculously flavorful broth, this soup is definitely to die for.

But don’t take my word for it! Try it and see for yourself. You can thank me later.
