Slow Cooker Meatballs with Greens and Cheese

This recipe is filling, flavorful, and fast to make. We use Suvie’s own pre-sealed meatballs and marinara sauce to cut down on prep time. Toss in two cups of hearty greens, some penne, and shower of parmesan for a wholesome and hearty meal. If you’re feeling spicy add up to ¼ tsp of red pepper flakes to bring some welcome heat.

Looks good, but if I wanted to make it for 4 people, would I simply double the ingredients?
