Ah meatballs. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. There's the classic, with spaghetti, linguine or even better, silken ribbons of pappardelle. There's the lunch version…a sub roll stuffed with walnut-sized meatballs, sauce and the perfect slice of mozzarella. And then there's the grandaddy of baked pasta dishes; lasagne Napoletana, with its sublime layers of meatballs, a fine tomato sauce, ricotta, and all manner of other wonderful things.
Here's how you make a delightful slow cooker version. The simplest way from scratch! Feeling lazy? You can substitute frozen meatballs, but we think the from scratch version tastes better.
