Like most parents I am often on the go meaning that dinner needs to be a few things:
1. Planned ahead of time. 
2. Quick and easy.
3. Something that the whole family will love.

One of my family's favorite meals is crock pot meatballs. I love that I can make these meatballs in the morning and go about my day without having to worry about what to make for dinner, especially on school nights! We love to make our crock pot meatballs saucesome with the help of Ragú® Sauce! Ragú® makes it so that my recipes can be quicker and easier to make without losing an authentic Italian taste! Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce has a delicious taste that your whole family will love.

I have friends and family that rave about these meatballs and ask for me to make them every time that they visit. In my family on birthdays we let the birthday girl or boy choose what meal what they would like for dinner. Every year my daughter chooses spaghetti, crock pot meatballs, and Italian bread with butter! She loves when we gather around the table as a family and eat her favorite meal. Below is my recipe for these Saucesome Crock Pot Meatballs over Spaghetti using Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce. I hope that you enjoy a family favorite!

2 jars Ragú® Sauce (We like Old World Style®  Traditional)
1 - 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 egg
2 tbsp milk
1 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
 1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt

Since my family likes a lot of sauce on their spaghetti and meatballs we use two jars of sauce. They also like having extra sauce to dip Italian bread in. First I pour one jar of sauce into the bottom of the crock pot to cover the bottom.

Put your ground beef into a bowl and add egg and milk. 

Next add in dry ingredients.

Mix the ingredients together. Roll into balls and put them into the crock pot. 

Pour second jar of sauce on top of meatballs.

Cook for 4 hours on low or 8 hours on high. 

Once they are done serve over pasta! We top with parsley and grated Parmesan cheese!
