    Default Spaghetti and meatballs

    his wonderful and super easy main dish tastes like Spaghetti-Os. If your kids like canned pasta, they will LOVE this entree. You can vary the amount of pasta or meatballs according to your taste. Just make sure that the pasta is submerged in the liquid before you start the crockpot. I recently started adding the pasta at the end of cooking time and to my delight, it cooked perfectly and came out al dente.
    Prep Time: 10 minutes

    Cook Time: 6 hours

    Total Time: 6 hours, 10 minutes


    2 handfuls spaghetti pasta, broken into pieces
    26 oz. jar spaghetti sauce
    24 frozen fully cooked meatballs
    1-1/3 cups water

    Combine all ingredients in 3-4 quart slow cooker and mix to combine. Cover crockpot and cook on low for 4-7 hours until pasta is tender and meatballs are thoroughly heated, stirring once during cooking time. This method will make the pasta quite soft, like Spaghetti-Os.
    OR, you can cook the sauce, meatballs, and water for 4-7 hours until hot, then stir in the pasta. Cover and cook on high for 20-25 minutes, stirring once, until the pasta is tender. This will make pasta that is more al dente. Serves 6
