Crockpot Meatballs


Tender juicy meatballs in a simple tomato sauce that just takes a few minutes to prepare and is full of flavor! My family loves Meatballs! The sauce is bursting with flavor, and once cooked in the slow cooker, these meatballs become so tender you’d think they were going to fall apart. The fresh basil and parsley add an herby touch, while garlic and onion powder round out the flavor of this bold sauce. Serve on pasta or with your favorite side dish and you’ll be sure to bring this meal to the table time after time.
