EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

This recipe serves 4 to 6 for a main dish, but more if serving as an appetizer.

Meatballs and sauce can be heated in a slow cooker on Low heat setting about 1 hour. For a party, it’s handy to keep the meatballs warm in the slow cooker.

Ground turkey may be substituted for the ground pork.
