Monster Meatballs and Spaghetti

Stephanie Gallagher
If there is one holiday when you definitely should not spend a lot of time thinking about dinner, Halloween would have to be it. But these monster meatballs and spaghetti make for such a fun and gross Halloween dinner idea, you won't be able to resist making them. The kids go crazy for these, and this recipe is almost no work at all, because it's all made in the slow cooker. Dump the sauce and meatballs in early in the day, add the spaghetti about 20 minutes before serving and dish it out, complete with olive-slice eyeballs for the kids. See? Easy!
