Chicken Pasta with Ranch

When it comes to weeknight dinners, I’m always looking for something easy, with relatively few ingredients that is picky-eater friendly.  Crock Pot Chicken Pasta always fits the bill!

I love using my slow cooker any time of the year, but I put it to use most often during the work week.  It’s such a relief to walk in the door after a hectic day and have dinner ready and waiting.

I like to add a few different toppings to the chicken ranch pasta before serving. Don’t get me wrong, the pasta is delicious as-is, but adding some broccoli florets, bacon or fresh parsley kicks the flavors up a notch.
