Creamy Crock Pot Spaghetti

This Creamy Crock Pot Spaghetti is so simple and even more delicious! It’s the perfect weeknight dinner dish for your family!

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 is by far the worst recipe I’ve ever come across. I followed it to the letter and came out with a gummy mess…NEVER again

  2. Heather

    When do add the chicken broth? Mix it in the with sauces first, or pour it over everything after its layered?

  3. Kristin

    This looks awesome. Was wondering if I could put all ingredients in the crockpot at the same time? I would cook the hamburger before putting into the crockpot. Going camping and will be gone for several hours so no time to add the other ingredients.

  4. Beth

    Your instructions don’t say how long to cook it. Is it set on highly for 4 hours or low for 6-8 hours??

  5. Lisa

    Tried this exactly as written and it was great. Go by the written instructions. I did need the extra broth. Fantastic.

  6. ashley greek

    This looks great! I was wondering, if I take the meat out do I have to cut down on the sauce? Thanks

  7. JP

    This was not very good and we won’t be making it again. Still have two pans to wash – the frying pan for browning the meat and then the crockpot liner, instead of the frying pan and the pot for boiling the pasta, so no savings in the clean-up. Spaghetti made the usual way is better and actually uses less sauce, and no chicken broth needed either.

  8. Rachel

    My boyfriend & I love this recipe!! It’s so easy and we almost always have the ingredients around so it’s a no-thinking, no-fuss dinner!

  9. Sara

    Hi there! Just found this amazing looking recipe on Pinterest. Do you think this would work with any shape pasta??

  10. Jake

    I am not a huge spaghetti noodle fan. I imagine you could use whatever type of pasta noodle you wanted?

    Hi! Could you cook this on low for 7-8 hours maybe? And once you pour the last two ingredients in turn it to high? Thanks!

  14. Jamie

    I work out of the house all day, do you think I could get away with slow cooking it on warm for 8-10 hours?

  15. Valencia

    I am wondering if you could shorten the time by an hour if you use thin spaghetti. (That’s all I have!) I’m going to try it and see what happens. The recipe looks delicious. I like the idea of a creamier spaghetti, some sauces are so dry.

  16. Jacqueline

    I just made this last night…well overnight actually lol! Thank you soo much it is amazing!!!! As I was up at 4 a.m. to stir in the chicken broth and do a taste test! Soo Delish!!! Thank you again 😀

  17. Peter B

    Let me begin by saying I’m not a spaghetti fan, but after making this recipe I’m hooked. I did use ground turkey and Tinkyada gluten free spaghetti. Thanks for a great recipe.

  18. Shay

    Hello, I tried this recipe using whole wheat spaghetti noodle and they turned into a giant mushy clump. Was it because they were whole wheat? Where did i go wrong????/

  19. Kylee

    How did you get your noodles to not be one big blob? I followed the instructions and the noodles were one huge rectangle blob 🙁 Maybe I missed something??

  20. Jeneen

    I’m going to try this! Sounds like a great, easy dinner. What’s the texture of the noodles when finished? Are the noodles al dente? I have picky people who dislike overcooked pasta! Thank you

  21. Kylee

    Could this be modified to cook over a 9-10 hour time period (while I’m at work) without the noodles getting mushy?

  22. Sophia

    Making this tonight for dinner. But I made it with turkey instead if beef. Can’t wait to try it!

  23. Gina

    Question? If cooking on high, how is it the spaghetti noodles did not disentegrate? I haven’t had the best luck with pasta in a crock pot. Any suggestions?

  24. Rachel

    I’d like to prep this over my lunch hour and then have it ready once I get home from work 4 hours later. The recipe requires you to tend to it after 3 hours and then cook an hour longer. Is it possible to just add all ingredients at the beginning and let it cook the full 4 hours straight or would that not work.
