Directions

1. In a large bowl, combine sausage meat with ground beef, parsley, 1/2 cup parmesan, 1/2 tablespoon Italian seasoning and black pepper. Using a spoon or cookie scoop, form golf-sized balls and set aside in a plate.

2. In a skillet over medium-head, add a tablespoon olive oil and quickly brown meatballs on all sides. Transfer the meatballs to the slow cooker insert.

3. Add the sauce ingredients (tomato sauce, beef or vegetable stock, Italian seasoning, Cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, 1/2 cup parmesan and parsley) over the meatballs and give a good stir. Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours or low for 4 hours.

4. Serve hot, with freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top of cauliflower rice, or zucchini noodles. Enjoy!
