I adopted this recipe from the Recipezaar account as I am always on the look out for make ahead recipe and this one would be a great one for my "what to make with frozen meatballs" cookbook". This is the original introduction This is an adaption of Red Penne with Garden Veggie Meatballs recipe #52512 by --Kari*left*Denver--. I had it on the menu to make, but put it off and some of my ingredients went bad before I got the chance to make it, so, here's the version I came up with instead. I like to make up several batches of the cooked meatballs in the freezer to pull out for an easy meal." Thanks cbw

  1. Karen..
    This was a nice meal and it was great to put it all in and then forget about it. I wasn't thrilled with the texture of the pasta...it was a little gummy, but overall the dish was very tasty (in fact, two people in the family said they liked the pasta this way because it reminded them of "catered" ziti!). I will confess I used my own meatball recipe, but followed the sauce recipe exact except that I added some salt. It only took 2 hours in my crockpot on low! It's a Rival 4.5 quart and everything fit just to the top, so I don't know why it got done so early. I took it out and put it in a casserole dish with a lid and then warmed it at dinner time. Thanks for sharing...I knew I would be busy today and it was nice to know dinner was already done.
