This recipe is special more for its cooking method than its ingredients. You can modify it to suit your taste, but I think you'll agree...making spaghetti and meatballs can't get any easier than this !

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 ounces raw spaghetti
  • 26 ounces spaghetti sauce
  • 20 frozen cooked meatballs
  • 1 cup water


  1. Break spaghetti in half and put in crock pot.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and stir.
  3. Cover, cook on Low 4-6 hours, or on High 2 hours. Stir once at "halftime".
  4. Note -- I use homemade meatballs, which I always have on hand, but I use a purchased sauce with garlic that my children love. The can size was 681 ml. Also, I never measure the pasta, I just use two handfuls. But the Recipezaar editors could not computer such a measurement.

Sorry, the pasta came out like glue and a waste to good meatballs.

Genius! Who knew you could cook the noodles in the crockpot too!?! How easy! I followed exactly and it came out absolutely PERFECT! My little toddler wanted THREE helpings of it! The noodles come out super soft, which we personally love. This is a keeper! Thank you so much for sharing it!
