    2 cup (8 fl oz) Water, tap, for tomato paste, extra water provided by petite diced tomato cans.
    1 tbsp Herb - Oregano, Dried
    1 tbsp Basil
    1/4 cup 100% Grated Parmesan & Romano Cheese (Kroger)

    1/4 cup Granulated Sugar

Tips

I add no salt to my cooking, preferring a lower sodium meal for my health and I use no salt added canned goods when I can find them.


Directions

Place crockpot on level surface and place on low heat for 6 hours. Start by placing the half stick of butter in bottom of crock followed by both cans of tomato pieces with all their juice. Follow this with all dry spices including sugar and parmasan cheese. Next in a separate bowl mix two cups of water with 12 ounces of tomato paste until blended thick, then add this to crockpot, stir in well, and cover with the lid.
Meanwhile set a separate timer for about 60-90 minutes to thaw out your meatballs, in package, on countertop until they have lost some of their water weight from being frozen. Do not open bags until the timer is done. This will cut done on unnecessary water in your recipe, and leave you with a thicker sauce. When ready you may drain your meatballs in a colander over the sink before adding them to sauce.
Continue cooking for allotted time. When done serve over submarine sandwich bread with provolone cheese or serve with pasta and enjoy!
