I love sneaking in vegetables, and I love crock pots. What better way to combine the two than with a healthy version of the classic spaghetti & meatballs!?
This recipe makes a TON of meatballs. You can cook them all at once and have leftovers, or you cook use the number of meatballs you need for your family and freeze the rest without being cooked. To freeze them, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the meatballs in a single layer with space between each meatball. Allow to freeze for a few hours. Once frozen, put all in a freezer bag to be cooked as needed in the future.
My girls turn up their noses at spaghetti squash, so I supplement their meals with whole wheat noodles, adding them along with the spaghetti squash when serving. They happily eat it all up. Sneaking in veggies, such a mom thing to do!
