The dish so popular it has songs written about it. And, now with this five-ingredient one pot slow cooker version makes it even easier to create. Using sausages to make your meatballs and a few simple ingredients in your handy slow cooker to create a satisfying weeknight meal.
1.Thinly slice onion. Remove casings from sausages; break each sausage into three pieces to make the meatballs.
2.Heat oil in a 5-litre (20-cup) slow cooker on ‘sear’ (HIGH) setting. Cook meatballs, turning, for 5 minutes or until browned. Transfer to a bowl. Cook onion for 5 minutes or until golden. Return meatballs to slow cooker; add passata, thyme and 2¾ cups (680ml) water. Adjust setting to HIGH; cook, covered, for 3 hours 30 minutes.
3.Remove lid; add spaghetti to slow cooker (break in half to fit, if necessary). Stir to cover with sauce. Cook, covered, for a further 20 minutes or until spaghetti is tender; add a little boiling water to thin sauce, if necessary. Season to taste.
4.Top with extra lemon thyme to serve, if you like.
