I’ve given this recipe a high rating because it’s a great concept. I never thought to do this and love to use the slow cooker. I’ve been dieting for several months and I try to “slim down” my favorite foods. I used 1 LB of ground chicken breast (320 cal), ½ lb ground chicken (340 cal. for some fat), 1 cup caramelized onions & garlic (67 cal), ½ cup bread crumbs (240 cal), ½ cup Parmesan cheese (216 cal), 1 large egg (74 cal) and seasonings (garlic powder, parsley, oregano & pepper). Use the amounts of sauces and cooked the meatballs the same as listed. I made about 19 meatballs (67 calories each meatball, sauce should be measured separately). This was not oily and the meatballs were awesome over whole-wheat pasta. I’m sure the beef cooking in the sauce would give this great flavor but if you need a lower calorie / fat version, this truly is worth a try.
