Perfect Presentation Platters

Crockpot: I used my favorite 6-quart crockpot from Walmart, which is at a great price! It also has a cute 2-quart option for smaller meals and an 8-quart option for larger meals.

Chopping Boards: I use boards all the time for both prep and serving. Some of my other favorites are this white striped wooden board from Kirklands, this mango wood board from Target, and this marble and wood rectangular tray from JC Penney. I also used my go-to MacKenzie Childs checkered chopping board!

Serving Bowls: There is something for everyone, no matter your personal style! Walmart has these dreamy gray stoneware bowls with silver rims for a great price. I also love these MacKenzie-Childs serving bowls, this black-and-white coordinating set, or this colorful terracotta Spanish style.

Can I Prep This Crockpot Olive Garden Chicken Pasta In Advance?

You can definitely cook the pasta in advance to save time, but this recipe is so tasty when you serve warm right out of the crock pot! However, the leftovers are just as tasty, so if you need to prep this a day before and then reheat, go for it!

Storing Leftovers

If you have any Crockpot Olive Garden Chicken Pasta leftover, store in a Tupperware container in the refrigerator, where it should stay fresh for about three days. You can also store in a Ziploc bag in the fridge!
