3-Ingredient Slow Cooker Alfredo Salsa Tortellini–creamy and slightly spicy cheesy tortellini prepared in about one minute using your slow cooker.
Slow Cooker Alfredo Salsa Tortellini
A long time ago I ate a pasta dish at a church potluck that was absolutely delicious. I asked the woman who brought it what the recipe was. She embarrassingly told me that it was just a box of penne pasta, a jar of salsa, a jar of Alfredo sauce and some cooked and cubed chicken. You may be thinking salsa and Alfredo sauce sound weird together. But I’m here to tell you that it is an amazing combination. If you’re searching for an easy recipe that can be put together in minutes I have one for you today. It’s just a bag of frozen tortellini, Alfredo sauce and salsa. And maybe some cheese if you have it on hand. Oh and if you don’t want a meatless meal you can add in some cooked chicken. If you use a mild salsa this recipe is perfect for kids. I threw everything into my slow cooker for a couple of hours on high and it was ready in time for dinner.
What Slow Cooker Did You Use?
For this recipe I would recommend using a 3-quart slow cooker. I like the smaller oval 3-quart for this amount of Slow Cooker Alfredo Salsa Tortellini because ideally you want your slow cooker to be filled 2/3 to 3/4 full. If your slow cooker is less than half full then the food will cook really fast. And that kind of defeats the purpose of “slow” cooking. This post contains affiliate links for Amazon.
