Aunt Lou here.
Around this house, we love cheese. We love pasta. We love ham. And we all know we love our crock pots. So Crock Pot Cheesy Fettuccine just seems like a natural match for us!
Cheesy Ham Fettuccine
This Cheesy Ham Fettuccine sounded great from the get-go. Then I tasted it. Oh. My. Yum.
Actually, Michael tasted it first. I was chasing kids and asked as I ran through the kitchen how it tasted. His response? Well, he didn’t stop eating to respond. He just smiled great big, and I THINK the muffled response was “Mmmmhmmm. This is really good!”
It was a great twist on just regular fettuccine alfredo. I didn’t have any dijon mustard and the only thing in the world that Michael won’t eat is peas, so that is why they are “optional” in the recipe. I had everything else for this Cheesy Ham Fettuccine, so I didn’t want to hold off until I could get to the store to get mustard. It tasted great without it. So, that is your call.
- 12 oz pkg fettuccine
- 2 c half and half
- 2 c shredded Italian blend or Pizza blend cheese divided

Slow Cooker Recommendation
I used my trusty Hamilton Beach Programmable Insulated Slow Cooker for this Cheesy Ham Fettuccine. Since this recipe has a shorter cooking time, I loved the timer feature. As always, I love how easy clean up is with my favorite slow cooker.
