I figure everyone has their own favourite well seasoned meatball recipe so I suggest using your favourite recipe for this dish.

This was another recipe I did for the Heinz Pasta Sauce product testing project and if you cant get Heinz Tomato & Red Wine pasta sauce then using your favourite will do.

I used my Mum's beloved meatball recipe for this dish and although she never cooked hers in sauce (she always always grilled them and served separately), the result was absolutely delicious.

Happy to post the meatball recipe if requested, please leave a comment if you would like me to.

  2. Pour over 2 jars of the Heinz pasta sauce until the meatballs are fairly well covered.
  3. Add 1/4 cup of water to one of the empty jars, rinse then pour into other jar and rinse. Pour liquid over the meatballs and pasta sauce.
  4. Cover your slow cooker and follow the times below:

    High: 4-6 hours
