Beef meatballs in a tomato sauce

This recipe uses a slow cooker, it can be done in the oven but the time would have to be adjusted. Using a low heat and less time to cook.

The nice thing about this recipe is that it it not time consuming, you make it and then just leave the slow cooker to do its work.

A delicious aroma fills your home, when your family come in they are tempted to tuck in right away, and they usually do too!
