Equipment

Ingredients

  • 48 oz favorite spaghetti sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 lb ground pork
  • 1/2 lb ground beef
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella or Parmesan
  • 1 egg- beaten
  • 2 Tablespoons dried basil
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian herb mix
  • 8 oz spaghetti noodles- uncooked broken into thirds
  • Toppings- Shredded Mozzarella or Parmesan

Instructions

  • Pour one jar of sauce into the bottom of your crock pot
  • In a bowl mix your meats, milk, bread crumbs, cheese, egg and seasonings/herbs.
  • Blend well and then form into 10-12 large meatballs.
  • Place the meatballs in your crock pot in a single layer and then top with other jar of sauce.
  • Add your water and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6-8.
  • Stir well and sprinkle broken pasta pieces and stir again.
  • Cook for 30-60 min on high or until pasta is done.
  • Stir well and serve with additional cheese.

Notes

  • 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

  • As with any of our recipes, carb counts, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly. As a result, your nutritional content depends on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish. The auto-calculation is just an automated estimate and should NOT be used for specific dietary needs.
  • All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline. Recipes should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
