Made this yesterday entirely in the crockpot. Mixed the meatballs, formed them and place in the crockpot. Then I mixed the sauce together, poured over the meatballs and cooked on low for 7 hours. OMG, these are good! The meatballs were melt in your mouth tender. Served over rice with a salad for a DH approved meal. Like other posters, next time I will double the meat as it does make a lot of sauce. Will definitely do in the crockpot again, so easy.

I loved this! I didn't have any tomato paste, but it still turned out great. My boyfriend and I ate this with spaghetti, and we thought it was the perfect amount of sauce. Will definitely make this again!

Great recipe! As pointed out already is a little too sweet, but that's easily fixed!
