Do the Noodles Get Cooked in Chicken Alfredo Penne

In many recipes that are cooked in the slow cooker, the pasta needs to be cooked beforehand. While this is ok, it does take away some of the ease of using the crockpot. With this chicken alfredo penne, I add the uncooked pasta about 30 minutes before it is time to serve. When it is cooked on high, the noodles cook perfectly, in the sauce with creates the best tasting easy chicken alfredo.

How to Store Simple Chicken Alfredo Recipe

Once you have made this chicken alfredo recipe, you will want to let it cool before you store it. There are several ways that you can store the chicken alfredo. The leftovers can be stored in the crockpot with the lid, in an airtight container or in freezer bags. Keep the chicken alfredo in the refrigerator.

How Long Does Crockpot Chicken Alfredo Last

When you store the chicken alfredo properly, it will stay good in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. If it left out a room temperature or not stored properly, it will spoil faster. If you will not finish the recipe before it spoils, it can be frozen for up to 3 months. When thawing the alfredo, you will want to thaw it in the refrigerator.

How to Reheat Chicken Alfredo Penne

When you are ready to reheat the leftovers, you can reheat it in the microwave if it is a smaller portion or reheat the entire amount of leftovers in a pot on the stovetop. If you want to reheat the leftovers slowly, you can reheat it in the slow cooker on low for about an hour and a half. Check the penne pasta to make sure it is not being overcooked.
