Crock Pot Turkey Meatballs with Butternut Squash Tomato Sauce
Butternut Squash Tomato Sauce
In a large mixing bowl add the meatball ingredients except the ground turkey and the sausage.
Then mix all the ingredients together until fully combined mixed through.
Next, add in the sausage out of the casing and the ground turkey and mix to combine. This is how I always make my meatballs and by adding the meat last you won’t over- work the meat mixture and your meatballs will be tender and not hard.
Then roll all your meatballs and make sure you roll them pretty tight so that they don’t come apart in the sauce.
Here is all you need for this sauce and it is so amazing it will blow your mind! :)
Simply add the two jars of this sauce and 1/2 cup of the butternut squash creamy soup and mix to combine in the crock pot.
Then add in your meatballs to your crock pot and cook on low for 4-6 hours.
When the meatballs are done I add some more of the basil for a hint of freshness and then serve!
These meatballs are so delicious, perfect for the fall season and so easy to make!
I served these over a protein plus spaghetti pasta and they were great but you could serve them as an appetizer for a party or over anything else you like!
