My Kid Approved Crockpot Recipe!

Im going to be honest, my crockpot and I are best friends. I am all for anything that saves me time and making my life easier when it comes to making dinner. I have finally learned after 2 years of having kids that crockpot meals are a lifesaver! 

There is no mess, it cooks perfectly and it's done on time, every-time! HELLO! Thats what I am talking about. 

My two year old has turned into the pickiest eater. He refuses to eat any kind of vegetables and thrives off chocolate milk and turkey bacon. I know, what a (horrible) diet. One meal he actually loves is pasta! Alfredo pasta to be exact. 

One day, I thought I would try and out smart him by adding ham and peas into. It totally worked, he absolutely loved it!

Heres the recipe below. 

Alfredo & Ham Penne - Crockpot Recipe 

2 1/2 to 3 hours on low

  • 2 15 oz Jars of Alfredo sauce ( I really like Bertoli brand)
  • 1 box of penne pasta noodles
  • 1 Tablespoons of minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper
  • 16 oz penne pasta
  • 3 cups of Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup of diced ham 

Cook and drain the penne the pasta. Add the pasta to your crockpot. 


Next, pour in the jars of Alfredo sauce, ham, mozzarella, parmesan, garlic, salt and pepper.


Give it a good stir mixing all the ingredients together. Set it on low and let the crockpot do the rest. Serve it with a side salad or, for an all-in-one dish, you can add peas directly to the pasta before serving.
