Recipe of the Week: Chicken Tetrazzini a la Crock Pot

I have always liked this dish, and I had liked a recipe from Allrecipes.com a long time ago. When I found this dish on 365 Days of Slow Cooking, I had to try it out. Especially since we are all about using the Crock Pot on Tuesday and Thursday nights (also known as Taekwondo nights). I changed the recipe just a little, using things I actually had in the pantry. In other words, all dried or canned. 🙂 I also added some garlic to it. Next time I might add a dash of Chardonnay to give it another layer of flavor. The whole family liked it, Lincoln loved the pasta with the sauce.
