Chicken Parmesan Pasta (in the crock pot)!

chicken_parmesan_pasta

I may have a Chicken, Parmesan and Pasta problem. Those three ingredients easily become one of my favorite comfort foods. And, I’ve learned it doesn’t have to be a complicated process or recipe to indulge. It was bitter cold out, several days in a row, and I wanted something warm and comforting, but easy too.

I found a recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Pasta from damndelicious.net and voila. Chicken Parmesan Pasta heaven. Promise you, it’s simple to make and even easier to devour. If you love Italian fare, like me, this recipe will be on your menu often. See the cheese? Yeah, I know.
