Will sub­sti­tute with lean ground turkey and sweet turkey sausage to cut back on the sodi­um and fat. 🙂


I absolute­ly love this recipe i have made it sev­er­al times. I am mak­ing it again tonight,per my 4 year olds request. I am going to be mak­ing ital­ian sausage with it as well.


Is it ok to brown the meat­balls the evening before, then refrig­er­ate overnight and throw in the crock­pot in the morn­ing?
