  • 40 Precooked Frozen Meatballs
  • 2 15 oz cans of San Marzano Crushed Tomatoes
  • 2 6 oz cans of Tomato Paste
  • 2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbs Itallian Herbs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper


  • Place the meatballs and all the rest of the ingredients in a 3 quart sauce pan on the stove top over medium heat.
  • Cook for 30 minutes.
  • Serve over your choice of cooked pasta.



  • The meatballs are already fully cooked, so all you are really doing is heating them up! They can thaw and heat up in the sauce as it cooks!
  • If you prefer to use a jarred sauce, simply follow these same instructions and instead of adding the tomatoes, paste and seasonings, simply add your own preferred jarred sauce.
  • This recipe is terrific over spaghetti, but for fun try some of the other types of pasta like Penne or Bow Tie!
PRO TIP: These meatballs taste BEST with a little char on them. For added flavor, bake them on an aluminum foil covered pan in the oven for 20 minutes first! Perfect!
