Crock Pot Meatballs & Penne in Red Sauce

“I adopted this recipe from the Recipezaar account as I am always on the look out for make ahead recipe and this one would be a great one for my "what to make with frozen meatballs" cookbook". This is the original introduction This is an adaption of Red Penne with Garden Veggie Meatballs Red Penne with Garden Veggie Meatballs by --Kari*left*Denver--. I had it on the menu to make, but put it off and some of my ingredients went bad before I got the chance to make it, so, here's the version I came up with instead. I like to make up several batches of the cooked meatballs in the freezer to pull out for an easy meal." Thanks cbw”
