Instructions
  1. You need 2 to 2 1/2 kilos of cooked Italian meatballs, these can be party size (gold ball size) or larger dinner size. You have several options to do this. 1. You can use what ever meatball recipe you are familiar with. 2. Use the meatball recipe on this site, which can be made on the day you are making this recipe, or from frozen as it is a general make ahead type recipe, link is in Recipe Notes section. 3. Last resort, you can use store bought frozen meatballs. If using frozen meatballs, thaw them, if using fresh made AND cooked meatballs, they need to be cooled to room temperature.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the soup (if using homemade from the short, it needs to be room temperature), sour cream, and water. Mix, then add the meatballs and mix those in to ensure all are coated well.
  3. Refrigerate the meatballs and mixture overnight. this allows the meatballs to absorb the flavors.
  4. The next day, pour the meatballs and mixture into your slow cooker and set to Low setting until the mixture is hot and the meatballs heated through.
  5. If the meatballs did not soak overnight, heat on Low setting for a longer time, 3-5 hours so they can absorb the flavor and have a better taste to them.
  6. For party size meatballs, serve as appetizers. For dinner size meatballs, I would serve over cooked pasta along with the sauce.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 500 Baht/2 1/2 kilos of beef. Source it locally and you may get it for less. This recipe makes a lot so I will just state now Low cost until I make these and verify serving sizes.

Instructions
  1. For the meatballs, you can use cooked and frozen from a store or homemade fresh cooked or cooked and frozen meatballs. Chicken, beef, or pork, up to you. I have a shortcut for basic chicken meatballs listed in the Recipe Notes or you can make the meatballs with any recipe you have.
  2. In a large oven proof skillet, or a large regular skillet if you are going to use a baking dish, heat the olive oil over medium heat and cook the onion until soft, then add the garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes, then add the meatballs, pasta sauce, and the Italian seasoning. Simmer for 20-30 minutes to warm the meatballs through.
  3. While the meatballs are warming up, bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the spaghetti until just tender then drain, retaining the water from the pot.
  4. With a slotted spoon remove the meatballs from the sauce and set aside.
  5. Add the spaghetti to the pasta sauce, add in 1/2 cup of water from the pasta and gently stir to coat the spaghetti. Spread the spaghetti evenly in the skillet then add the meatballs on top.
  6. If you are going to be using a baking dish (or two) pour the spaghetti into the baking dish and spread it evenly in the dish, then add the meatballs on top.
  7. Sprinkle the cheeses on top of the meatballs and bake for 20-30 minutes or until hot and bubbly and the cheese is melted. Serve with a salad and bread.
Recipe Notes

I cannot price this right now until I make it, considering the cheese, I will say fair cost right now but that will be adjusted after I make this.
