My household loves this and we serve it with radiatore. It's meant to be thick, and I find 2 cans of diced tomato has plenty of moisture. I don't bother to chop my veggies very small, so I usually cook it for the full 8 hours.
This is yummy, easy to do, but more of a savoury mince rather than a sauce for spaghetti. I personally would add another 2-3 tins of tomatoes, and some tomato paste, maybe a bit more water to get a saucier consistency. The capsicum is lovely, and I added lots of extra basil because we've got a LOT growing in the garden. Could also grate zucchini or other veges and they would hide well in the sauce.
Sarah! Great recipe! I never use celery or carrots in bolognese usually, but I can say I really liked it with these added. It was great to come home on a cold winter's night from work and have the meal just about ready for you, and tuckerbox is so right the fantastic aroma that permeated through the house It was the first thing that hit me when I first walked in .... WOW.... It just smelt so good!!! Great recipe Sarah! Will be using the crockpot a little more often now I have this recipe!!!
This is an EXCELLENT recipe.My Wife and Son loved it! The essential secret for a good dish like this,is the long slow cooking in the Crockpot.The basil and bay leaves work well in the flavour as it slowly cooks- and the magic aroma! If you are ever selling your house,put this dish on while buyers are looking through. Cheers from another crockpot lover in West Oz.
