Easy Slow Cooker Spaghetti & Meatballs
Classic spaghetti meatballs that happen to be so easy to make right in a slow cooker! Frozen meatballs, pasta sauce, stewed tomatoes, and spices simmer all day for an at home restaurant taste.
Servings 60 meatballs (6-8 servings)
- 3 cans (14.5 oz each) Italian Recipe Stewed Tomatoes
- 1/4 cup tomato paste
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 jar (24 oz) Meatball Spaghetti Sauce
- 1 bag (12 oz) Frozen Meatballs (about 60 meatballs)
Spray the insert of the slow cooker with cooking spray.
In a blender, combine the undrained cans of stewed tomatoes, tomato paste, dried basil, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Blend until combined well. Pour into the slow cooker.
Add the jar of spaghetti sauce and the frozen meatballs. Stir together. Cover with the lid and cook on LOW heat for 6 hours. It does well on the WARM setting once the cook time is done.
Serve with hot cooked pasta of choice, parmesan cheese, and chopped parsle if wanted.
The small 6 oz can of tomato paste is plenty for the 1/4 cup. There will be a tad bit extra in the can.
Prego makes the meatball spaghetti sauce. You can use any sauce you want, the meatball is the best one (we think anyways!).
