Slow Cooker (Crock Pot) Spaghetti Sauce With Marvelous Meatballs

READY IN: 5hrs 15mins
Recipe by jenne

This is the best spaghetti sauce and meatballs I have ever made. And super easy too. . .took me about 15 minutes of prep work! It's a thick sauce and is a crowd pleaser. Perfect over noodles or, better yet, to make a meatball sandwich!

This IS a *Marvelous* meal. So easy to prepare, layer in the crockpot and go about your day. The flavors were so italiano, my first time using the pepperidge sage stuffing and I think that is a key ingredient. My family enjoyed this spaghetti with meatballs very much. I made the meatballs small so that my little guy could pop'm in his mouth like the rest of us. I will definitely make this again. Thanks For Sharing Hugs ~V
