Possibly the worst thing about this recipe is that it’s so easy, I find myself running back to the computer to make sure I haven’t missed a step. You just dump in the ingredients (what few of them there are) and BAM! A delightful, hearty topping for your pasta.


I didn’t know that “cream cheese” sauce for pasta was a THING that people did until I happened upon 365daysofcrockpot. Foodbloggers opened my eyes to this flavorful and surprisingly easy meal, and now it makes it to the dinner table a few times a month.


Pasta makes a big difference in this dish – I recommend something with a lot of texture, such as bow tie or rigatoni. But, if you want to go the comfort route, egg noodles + this = awesome.

An easy, creamy sauce to serve over pasta.
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4-6
  • 1 packet dry Italian dressing mix
  • 1 can Campbells Chicken and Stars soup
  • 1 can cream of potato soup
  • 3 tablespoons of squeeze bottle garlic (find it in the produce aisle next to the fresh herbs)
  • Two frozen chicken breasts
  • 1 8-ounce packet of cream cheese
  • 1 Crockpot Liner
  • Pasta of your choice
  1. Line your crockpot with a "slowcooker liner" for easy cleanup.
  2. Place frozen chicken breasts into crockpot.
  3. Add soups, garlic, and Italian dressing mix.
  4. Set slowcooker to high for four hours.
  5. A half hour before your slowcooker is set to turn off, open it up and shred the chicken (which should be fully cooked by now).
  6. Add cream cheese to the crockpot and re-cover.
  7. When the timer goes off, remove the lid and stir in the cream cheese until it has fully blended with the rest of the sauce.
  8. Serve over pasta.
  9. Enjoy.
