Slow Cooker (Crock Pot) Spaghetti Sauce With Marvelous Meatballs

Total Time

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!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first 8 ingredients (stuffing down to onion flakes).
  2. Shape into 1 inch balls.
  3. Place in bottom of slow cooker.
  4. Top with mushrooms and peppers.
  5. Cover with Spaghetti sauce and tomato sauce.
  6. DO NOT stir, just shake the pot a bit to get the sauce down toward the bottom.
  7. Cook on low for 5-6 hours, but NO MORE. The meatballs will really start to fall apart if they are overcooked.
  8. Stir after about 3 hours, then stir once per hour if you can.
  9. Serve over noodles or make into meatball sandwiches!

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

Sorry, but our family did not care for this recipe. I followed the recipe to a "T". It smelled amazing while cooking, and yet the sauce was very bland, and the meatballs tasted like meatloaf. I'm glad I tried this, but I will not be making it again :o(

I have made meatballs this way before also ... just need to be careful with the extra seasonings since the stuffing mixes are loaded with sodium, but it makes for a VERY moist, tasty meatball :) So easy also!
