Easy Slow Cooker Meal-Sunday Sauce Dinner

For many of my Italian friends, we remember Sunday’s with our mom’s  pot of sauce cooking on the stove all day. But for most of us, sports take the place of our time to cook in the kitchen. So when I saw this recipe in the monthly cookbook put out by Wegman’s supermarkets I thought, I have found the answer! Checkout below how I put this great meal together in less than 20 minutes and my kids will have a great meal ready when they get off the bus and meals ready for my parents who need some extra help this week! Check out my review of this Easy Slow Cooker Meal-Sunday Sauce Dinner

Wegmans Recipe for Sunday Dinner Sauce


(I made my own 2lbs ground beef, 2 eggs, 4 garlic cloves, 2 tbsp Italian seasoning, 1/2 cup parmasan cheese and 1/2 bread crumbs) make into balls.

6-8 qt slow cooker


  1. Add 1 jar sauce to 6-8 qt slow cooker. Place ribs, sausage, and meatballs on top of sauce; cover with remaining jar of sauce. Rinse empty jars with water; add liquid to slow cooker.
  2. Cover; cook on HIGH 6 hours or LOW 8 hours. Transfer meat to serving platter; cut into servable pieces. Transfer sauce to serving bowl.
  3. Place over rigatoni pasta later.

Chef Tips:

For deeper flavor, sear meat before placing in slow cooker.

Wegmans Recipe Books

I love this store for not only the fresh fruit and vegetables but the great recipes they provide to help use there amazing products. They give you the option to make Sunday Dinner Sauce yourself or in this case, I could have bought it pre-done and just thrown it in the cooker.  The website even lets you create a recipe box of the meals you have made. They understand we have busier lives and look at ways to still help us feed our families. I hope you enjoy this recipe and I hope it helps you and your family Live your Best Life.
