Easy Spaghetti Recipe

We all have a favorite spaghetti recipe, but let me introduce you to my Creamy Crockpot Spaghetti!  Making crock pot recipes is such a great way to make dinner time easy.  We’re all looking for that! No boiling the noodles, just throw it all into the crock pot and dinner is done a few hours later. I added a little secret ingredient to my spaghetti….some cream cheese that makes for a creamy dreamy sauce. Be sure to try it 🙂

    This recipe looks great! I was just wondering if you’ve ever tried cooking it on low for 8 hours instead? As a working mom, I would love to put this in before I leave for work in the morning.

    I made this but my noodles got all stuck together? I followed step by step? And the sauce is so delicious. What should I do different next time?

    Hi! This looks absolutly yummy and I will be trying it tonight!! I have only one question: I just moved and do not currently have an oven. Can I put RAW ground beef without being afraid of the bacteria level/safety, yadiya?
    Thank you ! 🙂

    I made this last night and all of my noodles were clumped together like a brick. I made zoodles when I saw I had a major Pinterest Fail. What could have went wrong?

  6. Katie

    Just wondering if I would change anything with the recipe if I decided to make it without the meat? Like less sauce or something? Or just follow the recipe and leave out the meat? Thanks for your input!
