Slow Cooker Bolognese Sauce

This is easy way to make great sauce for spaghetti or polenta, or use it to fill crepes, omelets or toasts, to stuff baked potato or hot dogs. Sometimes I add red wine, sometimes not, same with milk. Maybe it’s not classic bolognese sauce, but sure tasty tomato and beef combination.

I made it for Valentine’s Day dinner and serve with hot spaghetti and wilted spinach. Oh, it was complete meal and we didn’t ask for any additions.

Slow Cooker Bolognese Sauce
