You know what I don’t make? Meatballs.

You know what Wegmans makes really well? Meatballs.

I love myself store bought meatballs. I’ve tried meatballs from Trader Joes and Costco, too. All good. All delicious.

To make my crock pot meatballs, I simply pour marinara sauce into the crock pot, toss in the meatballs, and sometimes top with a mix of Parmesan,Β mozzarella, and provolone cheese. Cover and cook on high for four hours or low for eight hours.

Ta da! Delicious meatballs!

You can serve these plain (I usually just spoon them out and top with cheese) or toss with noodles or get some crusty bread and make meatball subs.

If I’m feeling particularly fancy, I’ll make a side salad. A super simple side salad. Are you ready for this? Here it is: spring mix, salt, pepper, feta cheese, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar.

Boom! Done!

Everyone in our family eats this up. Even the kids. Especially the kids.

I plan this type of meal for nights when Kate has swimming lessons or soccer. I know we won’t be home until after 6 p.m., and I’ll need to get three kids bathed, in their pajamas, and at the table to eat dinner. So I most definitely won’t have time to make anything. That’s when I lean on this type of meal to save the day. It’s like a high-five from your past self to your future self.

Okay, you tell me. What’s your super favorite, super easy crock pot recipe? The fewer ingredients, the better!
