What you need
1 small spaghetti squash
1 large jar or can of tomato sauce
1 medium size bag of frozen meatballs

Cut the small spaghetti squash in half and place cut-side down in your slow cooker. The spaghetti squash I bought was too big to fit in my crock pot so I could only use half. Just keep the size in mind when you’re choosing a squash. Pour the sauce and meatballs all around the squash. I added some red pepper flakes…feel free to improvise. Use your favorite sauce and meatballs, or make your own. Cook on high for 3 hours or low for 5 hours. After cooking time, the spaghetti squash will be ready for you to easily scrape out its contents into a separate bowl. THAT’S IT! Try out this recipe let me know how you like it!
