A super flavorful Bolognese sauce that is cooked low and slow in your slow cooker. This is a wonderful made from scratch tomato sauce and is the perfect recipe to use up your garden tomatoes.

  5. Once it has browned, remove from heat and transfer everything to the slow cooker.
  6. Stir in the tomato paste, diced tomatoes, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  7. Set slow cooker to HIGH for 3-4 hours, or LOW for 8-10 hours.
  8. Before serving, taste and add more salt if needed, and season with black pepper.
