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 !
- Break spaghetti in half and put in crock pot.
- Add remaining ingredients and stir.
- Cover, cook on Low 4-6 hours, or on High 2 hours. Stir once at "halftime".
- 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.
I've made this basic recipe a number of times. I don't know where I found it, but it works fine with minor changes. Cook sauce, onion, and frozen meatballs for 2 or three hrs. Then turn up crockpot to high, break up pasta,add,and stir well. Cook for one hour or so. My wife calls it cafeteria spaghetti.
I used a normal size jar of pasta sauce, 1 lb box of angel hair pasta, 1 small bag of Armour meatballs and 1 cup of water. At 2 hours on low the noodles were already sticking together but were a weird white color and chewy. By 3 hours, the whole meal is stuck together and it can't even be stirred without turning the meatballs into ground beef. It's pretty much just spaghetti paste.
