Slow Cooker Spaghetti and Meatballs

Remember the meatballs recipe that I made in my last post? Today was my first day at my new job and so I decided to make dinner easy by having spaghetti and meatballs. This was super easy because we just used a jar of pasta sauce, instead of making it from scratch with crushed tomatoes.

Since I already had meatballs made from the ground beef in our fridge last week, this meal came together in no time. I just threw everything in my crock pot, set the cooking time, and forgot about it. All I had to do when I got home was cook the pasta to al dente, plate our food, and top it with a little parmesan cheese and we were good to go.

1 (26 ounce) jar of red spaghetti sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
24 frozen meatballs
12 ounces pasta (I used bow-tie)

Pour spaghetti sauce and tomatoes with juice into a slow cooker. (coating with cooking spray is optional).
Add chopped onion, garlic, and Italian seasonings; mix well.
Add still-frozen meatballs; stirring to mix well. Make sure meatballs are covered with sauce.
Cover the slow cooker, turn to LOW heat; cover and cook for 7-8 hours, or cook on high for 4 hours.
Just before serving, cook spaghetti according to package directions.
Serve sauce and meatballs over spaghetti
