Ingredients for Slow Cooker Olive Garden Chicken Pasta

Can you believe that this recipe only takes SIX ingredients? This is my kind of recipe! You should have most of these things on hand, but make sure you get Olive Garden’s brand of Italian salad dressing. Don’t make it with any other brand, I repeat, DO NOT MAKE IT WITH ANY OTHER BRAND! Do I make myself clear? Lol.

  • Olive Garden Italian dressing (I’ve used other brands of Italian dressing and it didn’t turn out… you have been warned)
  • Parmesan cheese
  • cream cheese
  • pepper

How to Make Slow Cooker Olive Garden Chicken Pasta

I absolutely love slow cooker recipes because of how easy they are. I don’t really understand how they make everything taste so much better than normal stovetop recipes, but I’m here for it. Easy. Delicious. Hands-off. Win Win Win!

First of all, if you don’t have a slow cooker, what are you doing with your life? Okay sorry, that was a little harsh but really, you need a slow cooker. Here are a few of my favorite slow cookers and other slow cooker accessories that will make your life easier.

To make this soup, you’ll add the chicken, Italian dressing, Parmesan cheese, cream cheese, and pepper to a slow cooker and cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours. Once the cooking time is almost up, you’ll cook your fettuccine pasta according to package directions and set aside.


In the slow cooker, you’ll shred the cooked chicken and mix everything together. I like to shred and mix things together with an electric hand mixer to make it easier. This hand mixer is my favorite and shreds chicken so easily!

Once everything is shredded nicely, stir in your fettuccine, and ladle into bowls. Serve with more parm on top and revel in all the deliciousness!

  1. I love watching you ❤️ your family is beautiful ❤️ you are down to earth.dont buy expensive food keep up the great work have you ever had hamburger or bonalgo gravy.brown meat pour in flour,milk stir yummy hamburger you can add celery soup, or cream of mushroom.add your favorite flavor.

  2. This was very easy to throw together and did taste really good but there is a slightly weird aftertaste from the olive garden dressing.

  3. Turned out well. Be careful how much cheese you use or it may get a little dry. Great flavor. I’m freezing a couple single serve leftover meals for a quick meal later.
