Chicken spaghetti a la slow cooker

Chicken spaghetti
Ok this recipe came as a request from the crockpot lady from here
It will be in the crockpot a little latter today. I hope it turns out well. I'll report back on it tonight!

*4 frozen chicken breasts
*1 small can diced tomatoes (preferably the type with Basil and Italian seasonings)
*1/2 jar prepared pasta sauce
*Italian seasoning, garlic powder, oregano
*10 oz. frozen spinach
*1/3 lb. pasta
*3 oz. cream cheese, microwaved a bit until soft, then mushed up
*1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
*1/4 cup parmesan cheese
*Fresh basil

Place the frozen chicken breasts, tomatoes (with juice, don't drain), pasta sauce, and dried seasonings (go fairly heavy on them) in crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

About 2 hours before serving, place frozen spinach in crock. I just chucked in the frozen block, and went back 30 minutes later, after it thawed, to stir in in.

30-45 minutes before serving, put pasta in crock. If you're using spaghetti, break it in half. Push down so it's covered by the liquid (you'll probably have to get it under the chicken to keep it covered)

When you're ready to serve, use a spoon or utensil to break up the chicken into smaller pieces. Put all three cheeses and the fresh basil in the crock, stir a bit to melt the cheese, and enjoy!

Review: This was really good, chicken was harder to break up then first anticpitated. I added fresh onio and mushrooms to the sauce at the begining of the cook time! Tasted GREAT!
