Recipe: Crockpot spaghetti

Spaghetti and meatballs = the ultimate comfort food. It's already no-fuss, but throwing everything into a slow cooker makes it even better and easier!

Ingredients

For the meatballs

1 lb. ground beef
1/4 c. bread crumbs
1/4 c. freshly grated parmesan
1/4 c. freshly chopped parsley
1 large egg, beaten
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

For the sauce

2 (28-oz.) cans crushed tomatoes
2 tbsp. tomato paste
1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
2 tsp. dried oregano
1 clove garlic, minced
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Red pepper flakes
1 c. low-sodium chicken broth
3/4 lb. spaghetti
Grated Parmesan, for garnish
Freshly chopped parsley, for garnish

Instructions

- Make meatballs: In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, bread crumbs, Parmesan, parsley, egg, salt, and crushed red pepper flakes. Form into 16 meatballs and place in the bottom of a Crock Pot.

- In another large bowl, mix together crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, onion, oregano, and garlic. Season with salt, pepper and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Pour sauce over meatballs. Cover Crock Pot with lid and cook on high for 3 hours or on low for 6, until meatballs are cooked through.

- During the last hour of cooking add chicken broth and spaghetti to Crock Pot, breaking noodles in half to fit. Replace lid and continue cooking for the remaining hour. 

- Garnish with Parmesan and parsley before serving.
