While slow cookers are awesome for their ability to turn a bunch of raw ingredients into a mouthwatering meal with barely any input; sometimes you want to flex your culinary muscles a bit more than simply flinging chicken thighs into a waiting crock pot. This recipe perfectly combines a very traditional recipe, a little preparation and a long and slow cooking time, to produce an authentic Bolognese sauce.
Serving this wonderful Italian dish with ribbons of silky pappardelle and a generous shower of Parmesan cheese is just perfect. Drawing those long strands of pasta through that rich, meaty Bolognese sauce is one of life's great culinary pleasures. Take your time and enjoy every mouthful; you earned it!
Note: All slow cookers are a little bit different in temperature and calibration. This recipe was tested in Cooktop Cove's Test Kitchen using this slow cooker, which is available for purchase here.
