Delicious slow cooker pasta recipes are perfect if you need to feed a crowd without spending a fortune. They’re all pretty easy to prepare and the result is a flavour packed meal that the family can enjoy.
Almost all the pasta sauce recipes on this website are made from scratch. We try to make sure we use easily accessible ingredients whilst also simplifying the process of preparation and cooking of a dish without sacrificing quality.
With most of these recipes, I recommend cooking the pasta out of the sauce but you can do it in it. Cooking in the sauce will result in a thicker gluggier sauce but makes less dishes. You can also have something other than pasta with the sauce such as potato mash, noodles and more.
There are a ton of different types of pasta sauce that you’re able to cook up in your slow cooker. This includes some stroganoff, bolognese, ragu, lasagnes and so much more.
We have more slow cooker pasta recipes coming in the near future so be sure to follow us on social media or sign up the mailing list. We also have a large range of other recipes coming soon too.
Incredibly Delicious Slow Cooker Pizza Casserole
This cheesy pizza casserole is a delicious blend of pasta, pizza sauce, cheese and of course pepperoni. There is a little bit of prep work involved but the end result is totally worth it.
This dish is great for feeding a crowd, one batch of the recipe will yield enough food for 6-8 people. If you throw in some garlic bread you could probably feed even more.
Rich Slow Cooker Lamb Ragu with Bacon
A rich lamb ragu is the perfect way to warm up on a cold winter’s night. This hearty pasta dish involves a fair bit of work especially being a slow cooker meal but it is totally worth it. This is definitely a dish that benefits from a long cooking time.
Serving this lamb ragu with pasta is how you would normally go about matching this dish with an accompaniment. However it can also be used in other dishes. You can use the ragu mix in nachos, pizza and a variety of other dishes.
Creamy Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff
This creamy chicken stroganoff is a take on the classic version of this dish that uses beef. It has all the rich creamy flavours you know and love about stroganoff but chicken as the main meat instead.
If you want to take this dish to the next level, then I highly recommend serving it with some shaved parmesan cheese. Also, garlic bread goes amazing on the side.
Delicious Slow Cooker Bolognese Sauce
Bolognese sauce is an absolute classic and loved by many. This delicious slow cooker version can be prepared early in the day then left to cook so that the flavours can develop and intensity.
You can serve this however you want but for me I served it with some pasta topped with some parmesan and basil.
Creamy Slow Cooker Chicken Carbonara
If you love creamy pastas, then you’re going to love this flavour packed chicken carbonara. It features delicious bits of chicken, crispy bacon and succulent mushrooms. I should mention that this is probably pretty far from your traditional carbonara but still tastes absolutely amazing.
Whilst you’re able to cook the pasta in the slow cooker with the sauce I highly recommend that you cook it separately. This will prevent the pasta from sticking together and making the sauce become gluggy.
Incredibly Rich Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff
Out of all the slow cooker pasta recipes that you’re able to do, this is one of my favourites. By the time it’s finished you’re left with tender chunks of beef in a flavour packed creamy sauce.
Normally you will serve this slow cooker beef stroganoff with some pasta, but you can always experiment a little and try something like potato mash or even noodles. Feel free to let us know if you come across anything amazing!
Super Simple Slow Cooker Minestrone
A classic minestrone soup is the perfect dish for when you need something tasty and packed full of vegetables. If don’t add the bacon and use vegetable stock, then this will also be vegetarian. Perfect if you’re looking for a vegetarian slow cooker recipe.
This tasty dish is best served by itself but if you’re looking for a side to go with it then garlic bread is always a safe bet.
Slow Cooker Meatballs in a Rich Tomato Sauce
These slow cooker meatballs are so delicious and totally worth the extra time and effort it takes to make them. If you’re running low on time you can always replace the meatballs with some frozen ones instead.
This is best served with your favourite type of pasta but if you’re looking to try something a little different then you should look into something like rice or polenta.
Delicious Easy Slow Cooker Lasagna
Whenever someone mentions lasagna you’re going to get a gazillion different ways to make it. This recipe features layers of delicious béchamel, pasta sauce and of course lasagna sheets. It involves a little bit of work but if you like a good lasagna then you need to give this a try.
You should find this lasagna is more than enough on its own but if you want a side then as with most of the dishes on this page garlic bread is always a good option.
