The Easiest Creamy Crockpot Spinach Meatballs: Low Carb, Trim Healthy Mama S

This creamy spinach meatball recipe is so easy and is a crockpot recipe!!

This is another recipe that uses prebaked meatballs. You can make them yourself or use the convenience of storebought. I have been trying out a few different premade meatballs from Walmart. They were pretty good. By far the best I have tried are from Costco. If you have a Costco membership, I highly recommend those meatballs (if you don’t want to make your own).

This is a ridiculously easy recipe that I like to put in my crockpot.

You don’t have to use a crockpot if you don’t want to. I just like the convenience of putting ingredients into my crockpot and walking away for hours. You can put everything in a 9×13 pan and bake it. I am sure you could even pressure cook this for about 5 minutes. This is such a simple and easy recipe, definitely give it a try.

Let’s talk spinach.

I am not a huge spinach fan. I wish I was, but I am not. This spinach in this recipe is about the only spinach I actually like. I buy the $1 frozen bag, not boxed. My whole family will eat this, and no one has a negative comment. If your family aren’t huge spinach fans, give this recipe a try. I, the resident hater of cooked spinach, endorse this recipe. In fact, we are having it again this week!!

    I made this in the Instant Pot and it turned out great. I wasn’t sure if liquid was required in addition to the marinara sauce, so I started with some chicken broth in the bottom of the pot, then put in two pkgs of meatballs, then I mixed the ricotta, canned spinach, spices. I spread this over the meatballs and then topped with jar of pasta sauce. I saved the mozzarella cheese for after and everyone just sprinkled it on their own servings. I set the time for 5 min, and let it naturally release for 10 min. Next time, I would just try 5 min of natural release, because the meatballs were very soft, but that wasn’t a deal breaker. Was still very good. Thanks for the recipe!!
