Total Time:
9 hrs 30 mins
  • 1/2 c. panko bread crumbs
  • 2 oz. Parmesan cheese
  • c. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • c. milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 7 clove garlic
  • 2 lb. 85-percent lean ground beef
  • 1/2 lb. Italian sauage
  • canola oil
  • 1 medium sweet onion
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 1 small bunch fresh basil


    1. Step 1Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Combine panko, Parmesan, parsley, milk, egg, and 3 garlic cloves in a bowl; let stand 10 minutes. Add beef and sausage; gently combine using your hands. Shape into 36 (1- to 1 1/2-inch) balls. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and lightly grease with canola oil. Place meatballs on baking sheet and bake until browned, 15 minutes. Drain well.
    2. Step 2Combine onion, olive oil, Italian seasoning, red pepper, and remaining 4 garlic cloves in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, stirring once, until onion is tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Combine onion mixture, crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and sugar in the bowl of a 6-quart slow cooker. Gently stir meatballs into sauce. Cover and cook on low, until the flavors are combined, 8 to 9 hours. Stir in basil.
