I get lazier as I age. I don't have time for complicated things, especially in the kitchen. This realization has created a new love between my crocopot and me. 2015 might just go down as being the year of the crockpot. In the past week I have adapted three of my favorite stovetop/oven recipes and transformed them into slow cooker sensations. Just like my apple obsession last fall, I am kitchen-smitten once again. I hope you enjoy this super easy version of spaghetti and meatballs!
Heat olive oil in a skillet and add onion, bell pepper, parsley, garlic, jalapeños (optional, but Dan and I LOVED the zing), sugar and Italian seasoning.
Cook until veggies are soft.
Add them, along with meatballs, tomato sauce and pasta sauce to a crockpot.
Cook on Low for 7 to 8 hours or High for 4 to 5 hours. Serve over cooked spaghetti noodles and sprinkle with Parmesan.
Happy new year, by the way! May this year bring many blessings your way!
