Melt-in-your-mouth, cheesy, garlic-y, Italian meatballs in homemade marinara sauce.
Mix all ingredients for the marinara sauce in a slow cooker and turn on HIGH. Heat a large skillet on medium.
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients for the meatballs and mix well. Shape into small balls.
Cook meatballs in the hot skillet for several minutes on one side, until starting to brown. Flip over gently with tongs (do not stir) and cook on the other side. Meatballs will still be pink in the center.
Transfer the browned meatballs to the slow cooker with marinara sauce. Cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours, or LOW 4-6 hours. Serve over your favorite pasta.
To eliminate the slow cooker option, you can cook these meatballs on the stovetop in the marinara sauce on medium low for about an hour.
For a gluten-free option, replace regular flour for almond flour. For a Keto option, omit the honey in the marinara sauce also.
