I warned you.
I am 100% addicted to my new slow cooker. And I don’t see that changing any time soon. At least not until Spring arrives.
The latest creation was a family favourite. Bolognaise. Literally a bundle of ingredients thrown in, lid on, and left to simmer throughout the afternoon.
No browning, no pre-cooking. Just time.
We enjoyed the sauce over a pile of spaghetti, on a particularly chilly Canberra evening. Comfort food in a bowl!
The sauce was rich and had lots of hidden veggies, that Miss C was oblivious to.
Next time I would probably add a little tomato paste, but the overall flavours were still pretty good. With the added bonus that we had load leftover for the following evening(s).
