I love crock pot cooking and spaghetti is great in the crock pot. I liked the simplicity of this meal and it tasted great too! I used Kittencal's Italian Melt-In-Your-Mouth Meatballs instead of frozen, otherwise followed recipe. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe with us, its wonderful.

When I told my sister today that I was making spaghetti & meatballs in the crockpot with frozen meatballs she was shocked. The one recipe I'm known for is my made from scratch S+MB's that takes about the same amount of time but requires much more attention and many more steps to cook. Have to admit I was skeptical too. It was just too easy. Used Rosina's Italian Style Frozen Meatballs. Other than adding a few more meatballs than called for I followed the recipe as written. Smelled heavenly while cooking. Was delicate but hearty at the same time. Even though this was delicious as is I think I might try fresh minced garlic and just a touch of sugar next time to make it a little more like my own with much less effort. Used a Reynolds Slow Cooker Liner for easy clean up. Thanks lazyme for a great recipe!

SUPER TASTY and SUPER EASY!. Was worried that this would be watery in the crockpot, but quite the contrary. I used Ragu chunky sauce and only had crushed tomatoes and it turned out absolutely delicious and chunky thick! The kids ate it up and more! Thanks soooo much for this. It's a keeper. Wouldn't change anything.

Easy, takes no time to put together and tastes hearty enough for all! The only change we made was to add a tsp of basil and a splash of dry red wine. Tasted fabulous. Thanks for an easy recipe...and the leftovers are good too :)

Very good and very easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't add the onion. I used ragu spaghetti sauce. I only cooked this for four hours on low. We all really enjoyed this. What a great way to fix up a jar of ragu! This was so easy to throw together in the morning and I love that this is made with ingredients that I always have on hand. Will be made again.

This is the second time I have made this sauce. I like the fact that it is so easy and quick to put together. It had a good flavor but was a bit tart for my taste. This time I added a 1/2 cup of wine and some sugar to sweeten it. Every ones taste is different when it comes to pasta sauce. Just a slight change and boy did we like it.

Good spaghetti. And easy too. Some of our kids were coming over for the weekend and this was great to cook slowly all day until they showed up. Thanks Impera for a simple and tasty dish. Made for I Recommend tag game.

I'm making this for the second time today. what a great recipe. I have made slight modifications, for my own taste, I use 3 cans diced tomato, and no sauce, as I prefer the "fresher" taste of the canned tomato., and I also use about 30 meatballs, or a whole lb, as 3/4lb doesn't seem like enough for 6 servings.

Love these crock pot recipes! I often do sauce and meatballs in the crockpot, but you have taken it and enhanced the flavor one step more, by adding just a few simple ingredients. I used my MIL home canned spaghetti sauce, which is delish anyhow, followed your recipe and it came out even better if that is possible. Thank you so much, this will be a keeper. I did add a little sugar to the sauce for sweetness. Thanks for posting.
