A twist on an old classic
5 hrs 10 mins
250g mushrooms (sliced)
400g bacon (diced)
4 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)
2 brown onions (diced)
2 blocks of Philly Cheese (roughly chopped)
2 tins of cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup of water
A good shake of dried parsley
500g of fettuccine
Good handful of shredded Parmesan cheese
1Brown bacon-add garlic and cook till fragrant
2Put bacon, mushrooms, onions & soup into slow cooker. Add the water.
3Chop the Philly Cheese and add to slow cooker
4Put in a good shake of dried parsley
5Stir well to combine
6Cook on LOW for 4.5 hours.
7Put fettuccine in a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water.
8Continue stirring until all fettuccine is in the water. Cover and leave for 5 minutes, stirring once or twice
9Drain fettuccine and add to slow cooker, stir gently to combine.
10Cover and cook for a further 15-20 minutes. Stir occasionally to ensure pasta is fully coated in sauce.
11Take lid off, add Parmesan cheese, stir through and serve.
1After adding the pasta, you may wish to add a bit of water to make a saucier sauce (don't add too much at once)
2You can use any pasta you wish with this recipe
3If you do not want to half cook the pasta, just put it on raw and cook for at least 1 hour (I recommend half cooking first though)
4I made this in my 5L slow cooker.

Tried this recipe tonight, and my oh my…it is really wonderful. Lovely and creamy. I was a bit worried about the 2 pkts of cream cheese, but it definitely added depth of flavour and creaminess. My pasta hating husband went back for seconds.
I did substitute 1 tin of condensed cream of chicken soup with a can of cream of mushroom soup…and added less mushrooms…

If I wanted to add chicken to this recipe would I need to cook it for longer or just the same amount of time?
No you’ll be ok 🙂

I just realised that I didn’t pre cook the garlic and bacon will this be a disaster?
