The possibilities are endless when we cook our Pasta and Meatballs at the same time. (You'll love the easy cleanup, too!)

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (28-ounce) can tomato puree
  • 1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (4-ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained and coarsely chopped
  • 1 medium-sized onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 pound angel hair (capellini) pasta, broken into 4-inch pieces
What To Do:
  1. In a 3-1/2-quart (or larger) slow cooker, combine tomato puree, tomato sauce, mushrooms, onion, garlic, oregano, basil, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; mix well.
     
  2. In a medium bowl, combine ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt; mix well then form into 1-inch balls.
     
  3. Gently place meatbals in sauce; do not mix. Cover and cook on low setting for 5 to 8 hours.
     
  4. Remove lid and add angel hair pasta; do not stir. Replace lid and increase setting to high.
     
  5. Cook 1 hour then stir and serve.
Note

If you want to mellow the taste of the tomato sauce, add a teaspoon of sugar along with the tomato puree, or add a diced medium-sized carrot. (That adds sweetness and nice texture!)
