Slow Cooker Cheesy Cauliflower

  • Cooking Time:

    6-7 hours on Low or 3 - 3-1/2 hours on High
  • Servings:



2 Heads of cauliflower, cut into florets
1 onion, diced
1/2 tsp. paprika
1 Fennel bulb, top removed, sliced
1 jar, cheddar cheese pasta sauce (like Ragu double cheddar)

Slow Cooker Cheesy Cauliflower is delicious. It also makes a large amount and is great for potlucks or family gatherings! YUMMY!

  1. Add cauliflower, onions and fennel to a large bowl.
  2. Sprinkle with salt & pepper and paprika (smoked paprika is great, too!)
  3. Pour pasta sauce over ingredients in the bowl and toss to coat well.
  4. Grease a 4 Quart slow cooker with salted butter and transfer ingredients from bowl to the slow cooker.
  5. Cover and Cook on Low for 6 to 7 hours or on High for 4 hours or until cauliflower is softened.

Optional: Garnish with crisp bacon pieces on top when serving.

Before serving place under the broiler for a few minutes to brown just a bit (3-5 minutes).

Happy Crocking!

I feel like I’m missing something here. How large is each serving size? If that is posted can you help me locate it so I know where to look in the future? Thanks! 🙂

What pasta cheese sauce do you use? Alfredo? I have tried so many of your recipes and each one better than the other. Thank you.
