From Real Simple. DH will love this! Serve over ziti or rigatoni. Spaghetti is to thin to catch all the thick sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, combine the onion, celery, carrot, and olive oil and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until tender, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the meat and cook, stirring frequently, until it loses its pink color. Add the milk. Increase heat to high and cook until the milk has evaporated.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker. Return the skillet to the heat and add the tomato paste; cook over low heat to reduce its bitterness, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the tomato paste to the cooker, along with the tomatoes, salt, and nutmeg. Cook on low for 8 hours, or on high for 4 hours.
