Instructions
  1. Lightly butter your slow cooker insert, then add the soup, cream cheese, broth and dressing mix to the slow cooker and mix, see you did not even need to dirty a bowl for this.
  2. Stir in the chicken. Cover and cook on Low setting for 4-6 hours.
  3. Now right after you turned on the slow cooker, go ahead and heat a pot of water to boiling, add some salt. When boiling, add the fettuccine and cook until just before before done. Drain and rinse, cover and place in the fridge. Take a break for a few hours now.
  4. About 45 minutes to an hour before serving, add the pasta from the fridge, and sprinkle in some spring onion or parsley, reserve a bit of spring onion or parsley for garnish, stir well and cover and cook for just long enough to heat the pasta through, 45 minutes to an hour.
  5. Serve with spring onion or parsley sprinkled on top, and sprinkle with some Parmesan cheese to taste.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 75 Baht/kilo for the chicken. The Cream cheese is about 120 Baht, go with Caroline brand, that saves you 30 Baht right there. For 6 servings, this is about 95 cents per serving.

Variant: Use Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup in place of the mushroom soup.

Shortcuts: Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup, Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup.

This is a recipe that screams for the use of a slow cooker. As the author of this recipe stated, slow cookers can maintain a very low temp, much lower than a hob can maintain, so this will simmer for 6 hours and the flavors will blend perfectly and the beef will be tender. For this recipe, it involves some work on the hob first, then the slow cooker takes over. This feeds a crowd, perfect for visiting friends or family. On my to cook list.

Instructions
  1. In a large non-stick pan, heat a splash of olive oil and cook the onion and garlic until the onion is soft. Place this in your slow cooker. Add another slash of olive oil in the same pan. Add the ground beef and cook until browned, add the ground beef to the slow cooker.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients EXCEPT THE SPAGHETTI, to the slow cooker and give that a mix. Cook on Low setting for 6 hours.
  3. For the spaghetti, you can do this two different ways.
  4. 1st Way. Cook the pasta in a pot of boiling water until just tender. Reserve about 2 cups of water from the pasta pot and set aside, drain the rest and return the pasta to the pot and add sauce, about 4-6 cups and 1 cup of the reserved pasta water, gently mix over medium heat for a few minutes and the sauce will thicken and coats the pasta, serve.
  5. 2nd Way. Cook the pasta in a pot of boiling water until just tender. Drain and plate a serving of pasta and top with sauce, serve.
Recipe Notes

The ground beef, or beef in general is costly. Depending on your location, you may be able to get ground beef and will pay top dollar for it. Getting large cuts of beef and grinding (or chopping) yourself is preferred and most cost effective. For ground beef, I will go with about 200 Baht/kilo. For 8 servings, this is about 75 cents per serving.
