1. Combine all of the above ingredients (except jar of marinara sauce) together in a large bowl. Using hands, combine the meatball mixture together and form 24 balls. 

2. Pour entire jar of marinara sauce into crockpot. (TIP: Use crockpot liners!! They save you so much time and hassle with cleaning!) Place each meatball into the marinara sauce and use a small spoon to cover the tops of each meatball with sauce. 

3. Cover with lid and cook on high for 3 hours or low for 6 hours. Sprinkle a bit of fresh parsley or grated parmesan on top, and serve with whole wheat spaghetti and a side of veggies! Enjoy!
