Crock Pot Spaghetti and Meatballs

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.

I made this exactly as directed, on high for 2 hours, stir between. I found the spaghetti to have a kind of chewy texture. I used Barilla veggie spaghetti, but it has always had the same consistency as regular pasta. All in all, it was barely edible. Once my stove gets fixed, I'll be back to making spaghetti and meatballs the old fashioned way.

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!
