Tasty Tuesday - Spaghetti & Meatballs

Comfy in the Kitchen is my absolute favorite site to find new recipes!! I have tried tons of Janelle's recipes and we have NEVER been disappointed. One of our favorites is her Spaghetti & Meatballs. I have made a few tweaks to suit our family's taste - but this is an absolute MUST TRY!! I use my crock pot for this recipe - and it turns out perfect every.single.time.

Spaghetti Sauce Ingredients:
1 28 oz can of tomato puree
2 15 oz cans of tomato sauce
1 small tomato paste
2 15 oz cans of water
¼ cup parmesan cheese
1 tbsp parsley
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp of sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp garlic powder (or more if you prefer - I do!)
1 tsp pepper

Turn your crock pot on low, spray with non stick Olive Oil spray and begin adding all your ingredients.

Stir. Now we're ready to make the meatballs.

Meatball Ingredients
2 lbs ground chuck
2 eggs slightly beaten
1 Tbsp of parsley
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 cup unseasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup milk

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.

Form into balls (golf ball sized).

Brown on both sides in hot olive oil.

Cook in crock pot for 6 to 8 hours on low.

Serve with salad and Italian bread.
**We use the leftover meatballs to make meatball subs the next day :)
