Slow Cooker Chicken Tetrazzini

I made the most amazing dinner last night in my crock pot.  Chicken Tetrazzini - so creamy, cheesy and just delicious.  This is a very easy recipe to make - just put the majority of the ingredients in your crock pot and set it on low and cook for 8 hours.  After the 8 hours, put in some cream cheese, shred the chicken and add some cooked pasta.  Top with some mozzarella cheese, cover and cook about 20 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

Dinner is ready.  I served the Chicken Tetrazzini with a small salad and some French Bread.  A dinner so simply, easy and best of all delicious.
