Slow Cooker Italian Meatballs and Spinach

This crockpot meatball dinner is sure to be a hit at your dinner table. It is hearty and full flavored for filling your appetite. My husband said it was the perfect dinner for a winter night.

The inspiration came from the grocery store. I was shopping this past weekend and I saw these chicken and mozzarella Italian meatballs that were all natural at Krogers. They were Aidelle’s brand. I was really impressed with the ingredients and they were perfectly low carb for a satisfying dinner.

Creamy Spinach and Meatballs

I really wanted to pair these with a creamy sauce. I wasn’t sure starting off what vegetables I wanted to match with the Italian and cheese flavors. Then it finally came to me: Spinach!

I love spinach in a creamy sauce. This is a really flavorful and deep full flavored sauce that goes great with spinach. We ate the creamy meatballs and spinach over cauliflower mash and served aside some mixed low carb vegetables.

This will certainly be a repeat meal for us during the winter. The creamy meatballs cook in the slow cooker, so there is no hassle at dinner time and easy clean up too!

  1. I couldn’t bring myself to pay $15 for three packages of those meatballs, so I made my own for less than the cost of one package. I also used the last of a bag of fresh spinach that was getting wilted, a can of spinach I got for 20 cents because it was dented, and homemade vegetable stock. The sauce was a weird color (probably because my veggie stock is often very dark), but it was delicious.
