UPDATED with a cooking show video:
We recently shared our Electric Pressure Cooker Spaghetti with Homemade Meatballs in our weekly meal plan and weekly chat. However, we have promised to share a crock pot version of every electric pressure cooker recipe so that our readers will have a recipe for whichever device they want to use. SO, here is the crock pot version of that yummy recipe.
Crock Pot Spaghetti with Homemade Meatballs
- We used our 6 quart slow cooker to make this recipe. I highly recommend using a 6 quart slow cooker so that your meatballs can lay in a single layer.
- I have made this dish using both Parmesan and Mozzarella cheeses and I like them both.
- I have tried cooking this with the pasta in the dish for the entire length of cooking and the spaghetti turns to mush, so I highly recommend just adding it at the end like noted in the recipe.
- I like to break the pasta up into three sections so it tends to stick to itself less in cooking
