READY IN: 2hrs 45mins
Recipe by Candace Michelle

Can't remember where this came from. Great appetizer, and if you don't have time to make homemade meatballs (even though you should still try to because they are great!). You can buy the store bought ones and put them in the sauce!

These were great! I used frozen meatballs and doubled the sauce. Cooked them in a slow cooker on high for 3 hours. It was a hit at my 4 year old's birthday and I will make them again. Thanks!
