There is almost nothing better than homemade pasta sauce! Once you’ve made this recipe for Slow Cooker Easy Bolognese Sauce, you’ll know what I’m talking about! – And, the longer you let it simmer, the better it tastes. I have even been known to let this slow cook all day while I’m at work. I love coming home to the aroma of this delicious sauce. I hope you do too!

  1. Brown beef and onion over medium-high heat just until meat is no longer pink.
  2. Drain grease on a plate covered with a paper towel.
  3. Transfer meat/onion mixture to a large slow cooker.
  4. Add remaining ingredients.
  5. Stir well to combine.
  6. Cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours.
  7. Remove bay leaf before serving.
  8. Enjoy with your favorite pasta or as the sauce for your favorite lasagna. I’ve served extra as a dip for garlic breadsticks too!

Happy Crocking!

I have told dozens of people about “The Crock Girl” when they purchased a new crockpot. Many came back later and thanked me.
