I don't see why Elbow Macaroni wouldn't work -- it just won't be like spaghetti. ;) You might end up with more extra sauce...I don't really know. I think Rotini would be good and Aldi has it on special purchase right now.
We tried this recipe tonight (I had gotten it from a friend) and it was yummy! I edited the recipe to allow for 4 meatballs per serving, and that worked out perfectly to make a 400-calorie meal. It was very filling.
You can easily double/triple it and use a larger Crock Pot too. The ingredients are very cheap at Aldi.
Fit & Active frozen turkey meatballs - $1.99 Traditional spaghetti sauce - $0.99 Thin Spaghetti - $1.29
My hubby and I will be able to eat this 3 times before the sauce runs out, and 4 times before the meatballs run out. That's pretty economical. :)

The recipe I just posted can be gotten entirely at Aldi and makes a great dinner. You can easily double or triple it for a large family and just use a larger Crock Pot. (Since I cook for my husband and I, I entered it as 2 servings.) The turkey meatballs are the Fit & Active brand, and the recipe uses 1/2 serving for each person.
