Okay so great recipes to me are any recipes that ingredients are in a bag or can..

And some other stuff  I can't remember :) sorry lol but those are my favorite ingredients ....I'll add a link and the recipe below ....

Opps forget to mention it's a crock pot recipe awesome right ....throw it in the crock pot and go :)

It was a delicious meal I added rice and veggies for the sides yup all from a bag. Kids loved it and so did I :) 
Slow Cooker Hawaiian Meatballs Recipe
32 oz. package of precooked, frozen meatballs (you could use turkey meatballs)
13.5 oz can of unsweetened pineapple chunks (put juice aside)
1 large green pepper, diced
1 cup of brown sugar
