It’s been a busy school year for us so far, and one thing I’ve been using A LOT lately is my slow cooker! We have several evenings of driving the kids back and forth to activities, but on Thursdays I usually stay and watch my daughter’s game until 8:30/9 PM, so what we need when we get back home is dinner ready STAT. It’s bad enough eating so late, but at least with my slow cooker ready to go, there’s very little I have to do at that point to get dinner on the table. That’s why I’m excited to share this classic Slow Cooker Spaghetti Bolognese recipe with a food processor (and slow cooker!) shortcut.
I sure do love a bolognese with a mixture of beef and pork, as opposed to an all-beef spaghetti sauce, and this one really hits the spot with the cooler weather we’re finally having here in NC. I served it the other night with a salad and some super quick garlic toast (I spread a thin layer of butter on sandwich bread sprinkled with garlic powder and put it under the broiler in the oven for about a minute). It was devoured by all!
Anyone else been having family dinner at 9 PM this school year? Honestly, if it means we’re all sitting down eating together (and hearing about everyone’s days), I’ll take it … no matter what time of night it is! I know I only have so many more years left of this precious time with my girls.
