There’s nothing better than coming home to cozy comfort food in the crockpot. And this one is wonderful. Just dump everything in the crockpot and you’re good to go!

Place 2 chicken breasts in the crockpot and top with the tomato juice and crushed tomatoes.

Add the spices and stir it all together.

Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4.

**Now I must say, not all crockpots are the same. Mine cooks quite hot on low so make whatever adjustment you need to.

It’s pretty easy to tell when the chicken is done…use a couple of forks to see if it shreds.

Once it’s all shredded, stir 1 cup of hot water and the pasta.

Turn the crockpot to high, put on the lid and let it cook for 20 minutes.

Top with the cheese and cover until melted.

Top with crushed croutons and fresh shaved parmesan if desired.
