Slow Cooker Spaghetti and Meatballs

The kids will love this quick, easy and fuss-free Slow Cooker Spaghetti and Meatballs recipe – the perfect dish to serve up for a weeknight dinner! In fact you’ll love it more because it really is so simple!

This is an incredibly quick meal to throw together! The texture of the spaghetti is much like that of tinned spaghetti – which I don’t normally like – but I liked this meal, perhaps because it was just so super simple to prepare.

It literally takes 5 minutes to pop everything in the slow cooker, and then I give it no more than 2 hours to bubble away. If you wanted to fancy it up, you could easily add some onions, garlic, or basil to the sauce.
