  • 1 bag (16 ounces) of egg noodles, prepared according to the directions on the package
  • Parsley for garnish

Instructions

  1. Gather all your prepared ingredients, except for the heavy cream and noodles, into the pot of your 7-quart, or larger, slow cooker.

  3. Stir in the heavy cream.
  4. Continue to cook for 5 more minutes, or until heated through.

Recipe Notes

*** If you want a thicker sauce: You will need 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons flour. Melt the butter in a frying pan and whisk in the flour; continue to whisk until thick and creamy. Remove and whisk the roux into the broth only after it has finished cooking in the crock pot.
