Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs- Slow Cooker

Slowcooker Spaghetti Squash and Turkey Meatballs

Slowcooker Spaghetti Squash and Turkey MeatballsOne of the easiest slow cooker meals I’ve ever  made a seriously healthy. All you need are three ingredients Spaghetti Squash, Sauce, and Meatballs (turkey for me :D)  and you’ve got dinner.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest from I Wash You Dry blog and I had to try of course with a few modifications.

Ingredients:

  • spaghetti squash
  • Jar of Spaghetti sauce (I used Tuscan style by Barrilla)
  • Bag of frozen meatballs (use can use in kind beef, pork, etc. I used Turkey Meatballs).

Directions:

Spaghetti squash after cooked in the slow cooker

Use a fork to pull out the meat of the spaghetti squash, a well cooked squash should come out pretty easy

Cut squash in half and clean inside out side if the squash really well. Place in slow cooker opening down, pour in sauce, and toss in frozen meatballs. Cook on high for 3 hours.

Yes it’s that easy!!!!

Some of the things I did and would do different, I seasoned the inside of the squash before placing in . I used Italian seasoning, fresh ground black pepper, fresh ground garlic seal salt, and a fresh ground ever day seasoning blend I got from Trader Joes (I love the seasoning that come with a grinder so you can ground them fresh, they seem to have a better stronger flavor). I also tossed some seasoning on the sauce and meatballs.

Next time, I’ll add diced tomatoes and maybe peppers and onions to the sauce too. Just meatballs was a little thin for me. Also I’ll put the meatballs in and then cover with sauce. Some meatballs didn’t get any sauce at first I had to mix it up after I took out the squash, with with turkey (because

it doesn’t get as juicy as beef) I think letting the sauce cook through it would have made it a little more flavorful.

Overall it was a great dish, I loved it. My husband wanted his a little more hardier so he made regular pasta for the meatballs and had his spaghetti squash on the side. Over all it was a good meal in the Greedy Girl Household.
