Spaghetti Bolognaise has always been my favourite meal. As a child I loved it and as a mum, I love how easy it is to make. We often make a big batch of bolognaise and then any leftovers easily freeze making a quick go-to meal on those busy evenings when there’s no time to cook.
I use the slow cooker to make my spaghetti bolognaise and it’s a real family pleaser. Serve with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and a side of garlic bread you should see smiles all around the dinner table.
