Slow Cooker Bolognese

Slow Cooker Bolognese

With young kids and a hubby who works all hours of the day, my slow cooker is my lifesaver. I can chuck in the ingredients, forget about it all day, and have a lovely home cooked meal for my family by dinner time.

The most time-consuming part of the recipe is browning the mince - which takes all of 5 minutes. You can't beat that for ease.
