Ok I know they don’t look pretty but they were yummy and way better for you than frying 🙂 I have been obsessed with crock pot meals. One they are easy and two most meals are healthier for you. Happy cooking!

Meatball Ingredients:
2 pounds trader joes ground turkey (not white meat too dry)
1 pound trader joes sweet chicken sausage (remove from casings)
3/4 cups Gluten free pano crumbs
2 eggs
2 tablespoons of fresh basil chopped
1 large shallot minced
2 garlic cloves minced
1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes (optional)
1/4 cup goat feta cheese crumbles
1/4 cup goat cheese crumbles
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Marinara sauce Ingedients:
1 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons of fresh basil chopped
2 cloves of garlic minced
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Start. By mixing all the ingredients together and then adding the meat. Combine well so that the ingredients are well distributed. Next purée the tomatoes in blender with basil and garlic and olive oil. Add some salt and pepper to taste. Now pour some sauce on bottom of crockpot so the meatballs won’t stick. Next roll meatballs in 2 inch balls. Stack meatballs into crockpot and then pou remaining sauce on top of them. Cook on low for about 6 hours. I made a second batch of sauce and cooked on stove top with pasta for a meal 🙂
