    You can, Micah! Just be sure you purchase “homestyle” meatballs, not Italian…lol! You’re only going to cook them about 4-5 hours on LOW, though, if you use frozen meatballs.

    Can you use frozen meetballs?

    Tina, you can use these meatballs for spaghetti sauce, subs, anything! Once the meatballs are cooked just add them to some Italian subs with some shredded cheese (parmesan cheese, mozzarella, etc). You could even throw them in a toaster oven or broil them until the cheese is melted! Yum…I’m hungry!

    After you have the meatballs completed/cooked…what are the remaining instructions for making your “meatball subs”?? Is that recipe online here, as well ~ I’d sure be interested in trying them tonight ~ thanks! These sound YUM-my!!

    Ugh…looks like I got to you too late…sorry. 1 lb of meat for future reference.

    I agree- no meat listed and the first step is to combine all ingredients, then the second step is to shape meatballs and only combine the tomatoes and paste, but then it doesn’t tell you when to add them in. This one will need a little tweaking… And Hurry – I need some meatballs for my super bowl party ! =]

    How much meat? This appears to be missing from the recipe.
