Can you cook pasta in a slow cooker?

Yes, you can cook pasta in a slow cooker. Just be sure to add enough water so that the pasta is fully submerged. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. or on high for 2 hours. From my experience, while the texture does differ slightly from cooking pasta in boiling water, it’s a time saver and still tastes great.
