You don't even have to make the marinara sauce (unless you want to)! What's even better is that these meatballs can be made ahead of time. I like to shape the balls and either refrigerate them (if I'm using them sooner rather than later) or freeze them for a month or two before I know that I will need them. They are great in a buttered roll, on top of spaghetti, or all by themselves! 0 Ingredients: Fresh parsley, for garnish 1 tsp. Crushed red pepper 30 oz. Marinara sauce 2 tbsp. Olive oil 3/4 tsp. Black pepper 1/2 tsp. Salt 1 tsp. Onion powder 1 tsp. Garlic powder 1 tsp. Dry marjoram 1 tsp. Dry thyme 1 tsp. Dry oregano 2 tbsp. Fresh basil, chopped 2 Large eggs 1/2 cup Asiago cheese, finely grated 3/4 cup Italian-style bread crumbs 1 pound Sweet Italian sausage, loose 1 pound Ground beef

    03 Method
    • Step 1
      In a large bowl, combine the beef, sausage, bread crumbs, asiago cheese, eggs, basil, oregano, thyme, marjoram, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and black pepper. Mix the ingredients together with a large spoon or your hands until the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Shape the meat into 1 tablespoon-sized balls and set aside.
    • Step 2
      Heat the olive oil in a large dutch oven or saute pan over medium-high heat. Brown the meatballs on all sides, about 6-8 minutes. You may need to do this in batches, depending on how large your pan is. Remove the meatballs from heat.
    • Step 3
      Transfer the meatballs to a slow cooker and lay them out evenly along the bottom. You may layer them on top of one another if your slow cooker is small. Pour the marinara sauce over top and sprinkle on the crushed red pepper. Cover. Cook for 3-4 hours on high or 6--8 hours on low.
    • Step 4
      Remove the meatballs from heat and serve on buttered rolls or as appetizers. Enjoy!
