This is a very easy recipe, especially if you take a few shortcuts with the original pinned recipe!
The original recipe calls for fresh ingredients to make the meatballs but I opted for my, nearly free, frozen turkey meatballs from a recent Southern Savers shopping trip to Publix!
Here’s what I did to prepare this delicious, healthy (I hope) meal:
I sprayed the crockpot interior with Pam, added the frozen meatballs and then a jar of my favorite marinara (also nearly free)!
I washed the spaghetti squash , cut it in half and scooped out the seeds. I put the halves, cut side down, into the crockpot on top of the meatballs and cooked it all on low for 6 hours.
I took the squash halves out and shredded the insides into spaghetti and then discarded the shells. I must admit that I really enjoy seeing the squash come apart into little spaghetti strands. I wonder if I can grow them in my garden this year?
Finally, the squash was topped with the meatballs and sauce! Easy and yummy!
I think this is fairly healthy too even with the prepared meatballs. Next time I’ll try to make my own!
Maybe during the next snow day!
