I don’t think the pasta and high cream content would freeze and reheat the best

Can you freezw

Horrifying you say Ann yet in the next breath you say beautiful and perfect and just right πŸ˜‰ Sounds like it’s just right as it is hey πŸ™‚

Beautiful! The amount of cream is horrifying though, so this will have to be adjusted to my family’s taste. I was dubious about cooking the cream for so long but it was fine. I was also dubious about adding pasta, raw and cooking it in the sauce but that, too, worked perfectly. I used casarecce pasta and it was perfect

Just cooked this up today for dinner and OMG the flavour is incredible!! Great for these cold Winter nights. Will definitely become a new favourite in my house. I did change up a few things after reading the comments. I only added 1x tin of soup and 1x 600mL cream. In the last 30 min I also added about 1/2 cup shredded tasty cheese and 3x tbs grated parmesan. I cooked that pasta separately to save time and I actually used rigatoni instead so it’s easier for the kids to eat. I heated some peas and just stirred them through before serving. Simple and very tasty dinner πŸ™‚

Absolutely delicious although very rich! I only used 800ml thickened cream and a cup of chicken stock. So easy and a hit in our household! Full recipe fed 5 adults with plenty of leftovers for 3 lunches.

OMG this is another go to meal ideal for Saturday nights to have a carbohydrate intake before junior football the next day all time favourite in my house

Absolutely delicious! A huge hit in our house. A family favorite.

Yes Amie it’s meant to go in raw

Does the pasta turn out OK when put in raw??

Incredible flavour, everything cooked beautifully – the chicken just falls apart. My husband, 1 year old and I loved it. Very heavy meal and I’d recommend halving the recipe if just for a few people. We have more than enough to last us for days. Glad we gave this a try 😊

After seeing this recipe appear again and again, I finally made the carbonara this week. I wish I had done it sooner, this is hands down, one of the best meals I have ever tasted. Hubby both preschool children also devoured it. Will now be a regular in our house!

Kim

Flavoursome meal! With plenty left over. Added 1 cup of mozzarella cheese at the end.

Finally cooked pasta carbonara last night and after all the reviews thought this meal was on a hiding to nothing! ( no meal could be that awesome as the comments suggestedπŸ˜‚). And I was wrong. This is one of the nicest, easiest meals I have ever tasted. I was worried about the quantities of cooking cream and soup so halved to 600 mls of cooking cream and 1 can condensed crime of chicken soup. Felt there was plenty of sauce and this will be a regular from now on. Thankyou Natalie for this wonderful recipe. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

That’s ok πŸ™‚

Would it be ok not browning the chicken? Did the chicken remain tender? thanks

Karen

June 27, 2019

I made this last night and it got a thumbs up from the whole family :). I only made half the quantity but still had more than enough for the 4 of us. I brown the chicken, bacon, mushies and onion before cooking and cooked for 5 hrs on low. I did the pasta seperate. I left the lid off the slow cooker while the pasta was cooking to reduce liquid. Will be making this again!

Maree

June 26, 2019

Suggestions on what o could use in place of cream as have a gf and df family member but she misses these types if pasta meals.

You can just crumble it in to dissolve during cooking or dissolve in a spalsh of hot water first if you prefer

Cassandra

June 24, 2019

Do you need to disolve the stock cube first or just throw it in? Thanks

Mischelle Fishlock

June 22, 2019

Sooo yummmmy.
Easy to prep and cook. A new family fav

Amazing. Everyone loved it

I made this in the Phillips 6L multicooker and it spilt a little out of the top from the lid(I used the bake option on the vent so pressure didnt build up) however once I removed the lid after the first 4 hrs to add in pasta it was fine. If you want to make this carbonara in the phillips multicooker, try halfing the recipe. It was a great feed though, whole family loved it ❀❀

Natasha

June 11, 2019

Made this tonight and it was an absolute winner with my 3 and 2 yr olds!. I halved the recipe and was still plenty left over. Definitely be making it again

Binney

June 9, 2019

Amazing, family enjoyed it! It does make a real lot so I’d recommend halving recipe.

Nicole

June 8, 2019

I made this last night, soo many left overs and my picky partner had 2 bowls. He loves it, I just added extra garlic and cracked pepper. Definitely making this again

Carly henderson

June 8, 2019

Thank you to Pauline for sharing this awesome winner of a recipe, my kids are usually fussy but I made this and OMG they devoured it all, and asked when I’ll make it again πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹
Will be the only way I make carbonara for now on 😬

Tanya Rumley

June 7, 2019

A hit in my house, it’s hard finding meals we all agree on due to different tastes but this was AMAZING, I made one on the stove but this one is way better and will replace the other one I made. So tasty and easy to prepare and make 😊

Nicole McNeill

June 5, 2019

Made this tonight and omg it was delicious even my youngest son ate it and loved it, great easy recipe…it made heaps and we have left overs which I love having…thank you

Darren Hayward

Cooked this a few weeks ago , family favorite now. Doing it agsin tonight

Karen Sinclair

June 4, 2019

Whole family loved this. Did as Pauline suggested and browned chicken, garlic, onions and mushrooms prior to placing in slow cooker (mainly because I was short on time and wanted to speed it up a little). Then cooked on low for 2.5 hours then added pasta (used penne instead of fettucine) and cooked for further 1.5 hours on high as per original recipe. Added a bag of spinach which I had in the fridge for the last 20 mins for some extra vegetables. Served with some diced avocado on top and parmesan cheese. Plenty left over for lunches the next day. Great recipe thank you. Will definitely be making this again πŸ™‚

That might be ok depending on your cooker. Yes pasta goes in raw πŸ™‚

Myssie

June 1, 2019

Can you put it on two hours low and then rest in high

Jess

May 29, 2019

Just wondering if I can cook this on low for 6 hours n do I add the pasta raw?
Thanks

Melanie

May 25, 2019

so much cream what could I substitute it for I’m in uk

Jillian Turner

May 17, 2019

I made a lighter version. I substituted the the 2 x 600ml cream with – 1 x 300 ml Bulla Light Cooking Cream, 600 mls of milk & approx 1 Cup of water then cooked as per recipe. 1/2 hour before serving I added Baby Spinach leaves. Turned out perfectly & was delicious.

Cindy Brown

Joanne Lowery

April 26, 2019

I made this last night for the first time and it was so delicious, Mr FUSSY (husband) came back for 2nds, he said it was really good
Next time I think I will add some chopped avocado into the bowls when it’s served up and mix through
We will definitely be having this again πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

Ness Wheeler

Do you put the pasta in cooked or uncooked please

Jo Lowery

April 25, 2019

So yum, my husband came and got 2nds without me even asking if he wanted more, that’s a compliment in itself πŸ˜‚
A very delicious recipe πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

Amazing!!! New favourite!! Perfect recipe 😁

Hazel

Lovely . Next time will use smaller packet fettuccine instead of wide egg fettuccine .

Karissa

April 22, 2019

This is my most loved carbonara recipe! So creamy and defiantly cannot stop at one bowl full lol!

Kerri

November 7, 2018

A delicious easy dish, something I will definitely cook again. I added the pasta too early so will add this a bit later next time. The flavour was so yummy!!

Vanessa

October 29, 2018

Does anyone know if you can freeze the leftovers?

Adele Cheney

October 10, 2018

I made a half recipe of this, but left out the french onion soup and also used low fat cream, and it was still delicious. I also added some frozen spinach for some veg.

Denise Smith

October 7, 2018

Add some chedder cheese makes it even more yummy

Anthony

October 7, 2018

i have a 3.9l slow cooker would halving this recipe be enough for 2 people and a 2 year old?? looks bomb and carbonara is by far and away my favourite sauce

Courtney

August 15, 2018

This pasta is sooo amazing ! My partner is not a pasta lover at all but he went for seconds with this and took some to work the next day he loved it lol
It’s delicious and I highly recommend for people to give it a try, I followed the recipe and didn’t change a thing and it was
Great

Christine Ellis

July 22, 2018

OMG.. was a huge hit, my granddaughter gave it a big 10,. Highly recommend this recipe, just loved it. I used chicken breast chunks.
Nom Nom Nom

Jocelyn Rennie

July 15, 2018

Oh my goodness this was amazing, certainly making this again and again.

Sam

July 11, 2018

Amazing pasta….. Kids and husband absolutely loved it!! And super easy….. Sauce was a bit runny but thickened as it cools down…. Will probably add more pasta next time to help soak up that extra liquid and help it stretch further for even more left overs!!! πŸ‘

Jade

July 2, 2018

This was the best carbonara I’ve made! I used lactose free cream and whole chicken breast and just shredded them before adding the pasta.

The whole fillets would take up less liquid πŸ™‚

Tracey Griffin

June 14, 2018

Made this today used whole chicken fillets bit too much liquid but was yummy as and chicken was devine

Ann Noonan

March 13, 2018

Cooked this last night it was delicious
Really enjoyed it and plenty of left overs for the freezer

Jodie Leemhuis

January 9, 2018

Absolutely delicious recipe! My whole family loves it and is sure to be a regular meal in this household πŸ™‚ I use breast instead of thigh, saute onion and garlic first before adding, add an extra stock cube and some cracked black pepper…so yummy!!

Grace Murphy

October 24, 2017

Made this today, I used 600mls of cream and then 600mls of water with the chicken stock. It came out lovely but it was a bit thick and gloopy. I think I went wrong somewhere. Other than that it was yummy

Steve Mould

September 9, 2017

I love this Recipe. Thank you Nataline

Judy

August 26, 2017

Made this the other night… Dumbo me didnt read the ingredients right and only had 1 bottle of thickened cream but OMG it turned out beautifully… My lot inhaled this and then with the leftovers the next night they were all fighting over who was going to have it!!!! Yummooooo!!!! Thankyou Nataline for your recipe its going to be a regular meal in this house!!

I haven’t tried it but I think it would give it an interesting flavour alteration πŸ™‚

Let us know if you try it

Deb Williams

August 20, 2017

I am thinking of trying this with cream of Asparagus soup . Has anyone tried this?

Michelle

July 25, 2017

Wow this was so yummy. Left out the chicken and used Penne instead of Fettuccine. Such an easy meal.

Tracey Burke

April 18, 2017

This is a huge hit made it tonight minus Mushys and had all empty plates 😍

Leanne

April 4, 2017

This was a hit in our house tonight.
Instead of using the thickened cream i added a tub of light spreadable cream cheese & added some water. Only because I didn’t have thickened cream in the fridge.

Leanne

This was a hit in our house tonight. so easy & flavouful. πŸ‘Œ

Can you freeze the leftovers 😁

kerrie

August 15, 2016

wow what an easy recipe.. big hit in our house..

Brooke

August 15, 2016

WOW! This is a wonderful recipe. I’ve made this sauce couple of times now in my 3ltr but as there are only two of us I halve the recipe which is enough for tea and leftovers for lunch.
The first time I added precooked Beef Ravioli but no chicken. The second time I added shredded cooked chook in from the night before in the last 30 minutes.
Both times I have cooked it on low for 8+ hours and added pasta cooked on the stove.
Next time I will add chicken from the start which will be lovely even if it shreds apart.
Thanks for sharing Nataline.

Joanne

August 10, 2016

I got home a little late so cooked the chicken, bacon ,onion, mushrooms, garlic on the stovetop for about ten minutes and heated up the soup and cream in a saucepan then added it and fresh pasta to the slow cooker, my house smells divine.

Lan Mathews

July 24, 2016

Looks good, tastes good – Definitely a winner. Cracked black pepper mixed through is great!

It’s not dumb at all.
You can if you wish – personal choice
We did when we cooked it πŸ™‚

Dominique

July 21, 2016

Thinking about making this, sorry to sound dumb but do you brown the chicken etc first

George

July 19, 2016

After adding the pasta, I’m assuming you mix it in initially, my question is do you have to stir it at all after adding it or before serving it? I’m extremely confused how the fettuccine does not stick together and become a giant ball of partially cooked in some parts and over cooked in other parts.

Julie bird

July 13, 2016

Looking to making this but halving the recipe, would cooking time still be the same or les?

Tiffany Huston

July 10, 2016

This recipe is so easy & tastes fantastic. New addition to the household dinner list. I was dubious about adding the pasta & thought it might clump together or not cook well but it works great.
Can’t go wrong with this one!

Kelly

July 9, 2016

Soo good, i halved the recipe and it still fed 2 adults & 3 kids. Used rigatoni pasta delish

Esma Eftimova

July 7, 2016

Tried this recipe yesterday but played with it a little bit; didn’t add chicken, I made it for 2 and added some chopped spring onion on top when served. I used penne pasta, added garlic but omitted the chicken stock cube. I was very reluctant to put raw pasta (my lovely husband is so fussy and ends up not eating it). I will say this: I am never making it any other way. My husband who, again is very fussy, devouvered in record time and went for seconds. He even said it is the best past he ever ate. Amasing, just amasing.

Jayde Taulien

July 4, 2016

I have everything except the cans of soup, can I replace them with anything else?

Sharon King

July 2, 2016

Brilliant recipe! Will definitely be a regular here. Even the fussy 3yo had 2 serves. A delicious and easy meal to prepare, no sides required and a flavour that’s spot on.

Katy Walker-Tassell

June 30, 2016

Very nice meal. Even a hit with the 2 yr old ?

Kylie

June 30, 2016

Loved this, plenty of flavour and heaps left for left overs. I did find it to be a little too thick but I still managed to leave my plate empty lol! Was delicious!!!

Jenn

June 27, 2016

K i have a few probably silly questions. One what is thickened cream? Heavy cream? An 600 ml is what in oz ? Lol

Rachael Morrison

June 25, 2016

I only used 1x 600 ml cream and just used extra chicken stock to make up the liquid amount. Very tasty and a huge hit with everyone!

A cream that resists splitting during cooking with heat πŸ™‚

Jude

June 20, 2016

What is cooking cream please I’m in uk thanks .

Anne

June 19, 2016

Easy to make and super tasty! Makes a generous amount even when I halved the original recipe. I substituted mushrooms with some zucchini and added it with the Pasta towards the end. Very happy with this recipe!

Cherlyn Davies

June 19, 2016

Didn’t have enough cream in the fridge so used a cream and a tin of evaporated milk, also used penne rather than fettucine. The family went nuts for it! The best thing that’s ever come out of my slow cooker. Thanks for posting.

Bee

June 18, 2016

In the Uk, what should I use instead of thickened cream?

Leesa Prehn

June 18, 2016

Great recipe, I’ve even cooked it with 300ml cream & 1 tin of soup the only thing there’s no left overs.

Katie Nicholas

June 17, 2016

Absolutely amazing will definatley be cooking this again! Even my 10 month old had seconds !

Bienka Surdoski

June 17, 2016

Amazing. Best pasta I’ve ever made

JC

June 16, 2016

What can i use instead of cream of chicken soup? I only make food from scratch?
Also if i want to add chicken, how do i do it in the recipe?
Thanks

Just try it leaving them out πŸ™‚

Maureen

June 16, 2016

Has anyone tried cooking with Greek yogurt in place of cream? Have read this somewhere but never tried.

Ellen

June 15, 2016

Would this be as good without the mushrooms? I’d love to try it but can’t eat mushrooms any more πŸ™

Ours didn’t split
If in doubt though use cooking cream that resists splitting πŸ™‚

Judith Clark

June 15, 2016

Will making this soon as I get some chicken breast as my 15 yr old daughter doesn’t understand what chicken breast is to buy on her way home from school lol everything else is ready to roll tho

Laura

June 15, 2016

Would the cream not split if u cook on low for 4 hrs? I’ve had a few mishaps with other recipes when I add in the cream.

Add it raw

Diane

June 14, 2016

Do you cook the fettucine first and then put in slow cooker or add it un cooked and cook for an hour

Jess Barentsen

June 13, 2016

OMG absolutely amazing ? Can’t fault a thing. I christened my brand new SC with this recipe and I was so glad I did, huge hit with my hubby ? We got 9 generous serves out of this & it froze and reheated well.

Jill Stone

June 12, 2016

Oh so naughty with all that cream, but oh so nice! I halved everything, made five generous servings, plus a small serve left over for lunch tomorrow. I cooked it on high for one and a half hours, then added pasta and cooked a further one and a half hours. Will definately be making this again, but will save it for a special occasion.

Rozi Pottsy

“This Is Good.”
” This Is Really Good”
were the words out of my husbands mouth..
I guess that means you created a winner πŸ™‚

Sarah Deane

June 12, 2016

Great recipe. I use chicken breasts and only 1 tub of thickened cream. When the pasta is in I just add a little water as needed. Also you should mention that if using fettuccine you will have to stir it half way through cooking otherwise it sticks together. So delish!

Carla

June 10, 2016

Family lived it although thought it was to creamy… Maybe use a little less next time but other than that, it was delicious

Note: We pre browned chicken & bacon, onion, mushrooms & garlic at start
And swapped the fettuccine for penne
Just brilliant this dish ??

Firstly something amazing happened …..
Not only everyone ate it but my fussy 2yr old wanted seconds!!!!
Now she eats most things we give her – but she eats like a bird
She HOOKED into this then into seconds ?
Both my boys ate it with gusto ?
And hubbies plate was empty in about 2 minutes flat as he too headed back for seconds!!
I’m pretty sure I made moaning noises as I ate!
lol lol lol lol

Seriously …. This was AMAZING!!!

I give it 5/5 stars without ANY hesitation ??
?????

Yasmyn

June 7, 2016

Sooo yummy.
I used chicken breast instead.
Also didn’t use the stock cube.
I also halved all ingredients but still used 500g fettuccine so towards the end when the pasta was soaking up the liquid I added 1.5 cups of water and stirred through. Perfect to not used so much condensed soup and cream. Very delicious, will be a favourite.

Nikki

June 6, 2016

Would it still work without the soups in it?

Kylie McDowell

June 1, 2016

I cooked this for tea tonight and I used chicken breast instead of thigh. I cooked for 3 hours on low added the pasta and cooked on high for 1 hour and 15. This is so so good!! Absolutely delicious!! I will definitely be cooking this again πŸ™‚

Melinda

May 30, 2016

This is hands down the best recipe i have ever tasted thank you so much ….

Bernie

Was amazing would use cooking cream next time so doesn’t split when re heating it!!

Kristen

May 25, 2016

I have tried so times to make a sauce like this & always failed, first time I cooked it, it was beautiful, Finally found the right recipe, thankyou

Shelley

May 24, 2016

This was an absolute hit in our house. I left out the chicken and used aldi’s ham & cheese tortellini instead of the fettuccine. Hubby made me promise to never lose this recipe!

Leesa

May 22, 2016

Cooked this tonight. I halved the quantities as I had only brought 1 cream it was still amazing bets a packet one hands down.

Denni

rachael magill

May 17, 2016

Diane

April 28, 2016

what do you use for thickened cream and the chicken stock cube is that just a bouillon cube?

Nataline could you let us know what size slow cooker you used please? πŸ™‚

Stephanie
