crockpot: mushroom and shrimp pasta

ok before you judge, yes, that is my crockpot on our washing machine.

with the kitchen under construction, i had to get creative. we have a makeshift kitchen which i like to refer to as "crockpot cafe" because that is literally all i have to cook with over the next few months. lucky us.

on the bright side, dinner was outstanding last night, so i'm sharing the recipe.

i was playing on pinterest and came across this recipe, it looked fairly easy to convert to an all in one crockpot dish, so i did. and viola. crockpot mushroom and shrimp pasta. super easy too.


- 1 pkg 16oz pasta (fettuccine or linguine work best)
- 1 pkg sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1 pkg peeled and devined shrimp (i actually used frozen and it worked)
- 3 oz of cream cheese
- 1 can of cream of mushroom
- 1 can of chicken broth
- 1 can of cream of chicken and herbs
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 stick of butter
- (and i added a splash of moscato since i had it out and all)


combine everything except the cream cheese in the crockpot and cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours. i judged it on whether or not the noodles were ready or not. the last 30-45 min add in the cream cheese. stir occasionally and enjoy.

i forgot to take a pic, because we were starving, but it looked just like this picture off of pinterest.
we had this with steaks and it was delicious!
 i have been instructed to make this again VERY soon from the mr.

hope this was helpful. i promise it will NOT disappoint!

love, linds


  1. I made this last night and it turned out soooo good!!! yum! Very flavorful! My shrimp had a weird texture though, but it may have been the brand not sure. And in my personal bowl I sprinkle a little garlic powder and cayenne pepper bc I love spicy stuff! Oh I even got the cream of mushroom with roasted garlic soup for more flavor. Can you tell I'm a garlic lover? lol. Excellent, easy recipe!! Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. did you use frozen cooked or uncooked shrimp??

  3. Can this be cooked on low? Like when I leave in the morning for work?

  4. should pasta be cooked prior to adding?
