I read this recipe online and did not believe it could be done. I tried it and just learned a whole new way to make pasta without boiling water!! Oh the possibilities!
1 lb frozen meatballs
12 oz dry spaghetti noodles
28 oz jar spaghetti sauce
1/2 jar (the sauce jar) of water
Break noodles and place in bottom of slow cooker. I broke mine in half.
Pour in sauce and 1/2 a jar filled with water over noodles. I added a tiny bit of olive oil to keep the noodles from sticking together.
Top with frozen meatballs.
Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours. Stir it 1/2 way through if you can but you don’t have to.
By the way this is my new slow cooker and I LOVE it! It does not heat up the kitchen and the insert is metal with a non stick coating and so much easier to clean! I got it a WalMart for $39.
Here is how it turned out……..
It was PERFECT!
I do recommend saving some of the sauce for serving if you like your spaghetti extra saucy. :)
All of these ingredients can be kept on hand for a quick last minute throw together dinner.
