I will make this again. I added some half and half in addition to the evaporated milk. I used Alfredo sauce mix because I couldn't find a white sauce mix. I also used frozen tortellini. My family loved it. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to make it.
I intend to make this with all the recommendations being taken into consideration. I am also planning to put chicken in it, being my family would disown me if i put a meatless dish down in front of them for dinner. I am wondering if raw chicken would be ok(cook time is long enough) or if i should precook the chicken? Suggestions? Ya'll are great! Happy New Year~
I was so excited to try this. When I did, I was extremely disappointed. It is bland and not at all creamy like I expected. I had to add more oregano and basil towards the end, more 'white sauce' and tons more salt for this to not taste like watered down chicken broth. I also added the evaporated milk at the same time as the tortellini, hoping it'd make it 'creamier'. It did a bit, but it was still just 'blah'.
I really enjoyed making this recipe. I did run into the same issue with finding the white sauce. I just made my own white sauce with butter, flour and milk and it worked out just fine. I did taste it halfway through cooking time and it did need more salt. It turned out creamy, I think because I made my own sauce. My family thought is was very good and I will make this soup again!
Saute the mushrooms, onion, and garlic in some butter first. You can easily make your own white sauce, but it's a matter of preference. Not hard stuff - do what's convenient for you. As a general rule, I double seasonings for most slow cooker recipes. Also, I don't see why you shouldn't use cream, half-and-half, or whatever your heart desires at the end. Evaporated milk isn't necessary if you're not adding it at the beginning.
