Pasta with Slow Cooker Meatballs

Dinner was just delicious. Slow Cooker Meatballs! Amazing!

I made the meatballs on Sunday. I had other things I needed to get done and did not have the time to spend in the kitchen. So I googled slow cooker meatballs and it was quite easy.

I opened a can of crushed tomatoes and a jar of Rao's Marinara Sauce and put that in the slow cooker, heating it up. Yes I used jarred sauce. 
I made my usual meatball recipe.

THE MEATBALL RECIPE - I tear up a couple pieces of bread, either a roll or Italian bread and add that with small amount of milk to a bowl and let it sit. You want the bread to get mushy. Squeeze out as much milk as you can from the bread.

Add the meat, I use beef and pork and veal, or just beef and pork. One egg, Parmesan Cheese, oregano, salt and pepper. Mix it gently with your hands and shape into what ever size meatball you like. Yes I use a kitchen scale so they are all the same size.

After the sauce was heated I put the meatballs into the slow cooker covered it and walked away for about 4 hours. The slow cooker was set on high.

Tonight made the pasta and enjoyed the meatballs.
