Probably the very best I ever tasted... and I've tasted lots of spaghetti!
Place all ingredients in crock pot and add prepared meat balls.
(important to include these in this recipe)
Mix all together and use 1/4 cup measure to scoop mixture to form balls. Place on cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F to firm up and add to sauce. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Can be doubled in a 6 quart crock pot. This also freezes very well.

I love using crock pots and developed this way of cooking Italian food when I was working. I put a can of spaghetti sauce in a crock pot and then add either Italian sausage, chicken, or beef such as London broil.
I've tried so many other recipes for this spaghetti sauce and always return to this old recipe I've used for years.
