I can't seem to cook anything but pasta properly, and I can only seem to bake desserts. But, I would never use dry parmesan. Only freshly grated for me, and I like to try different cheeses, too.
You don't even need a crockpot to make a decent pasta sauce. Chop an onion up, crush a clove of garlic and fry them both in a pan until they're translucent (you can also add some sliced bell peppers or dried chillies at this point). Then add a can of tomatos. If they're whole ones, use a potato masher or a fork to break them up. Cook on a medium heat until it's reduced down a bit. Easy. Takes about 15 mins max. If you want you can bung some dried herbs in or a slosh of red wine or red wine vinager.
If you're doing meatballs with it, fry them first then simmer them in the sauce until they're cooked through. Alternatively (and better), chuck some shop bought Swedish meatballs in. They don't need cooking, just warming through.
