Notes: Don’t own a Crock-Pot 6-Quart 5-in-1 Multi-Cooker yet? you can still make this recipe by making the cream sauce in a sauce pan on the stove. Start out in the sauce pan on the stove and follow step 2-8 then transfer the Alfredo sauce to a 6 quart Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker and follow the remaining steps.
