I’ve done Bolognese here before, prior to the start of my challenge, but this was a slightly different version.
2 pounds ground beef substitute
1 medium onion, chopped
8 cloves garlic, minced
3 14 oz cans chopped tomatoes, drained (oops, I accidentally used one “fire roasted” and 2 regular)
2 15 oz cans tomato sauce
2 6 oz cans tomato paste
1/3 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. dried oregano
1 Tbsp. dried basil
2 tsp. dried marjoram
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
Place all ingredients in 5 quart slow cooker.
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
Serve over your favorite pasta.
Yum! This was great and was super simple to just throw in the slow cooker and serve when done. It’s hard to recall exactly, since it’s been a few months, but I think I preferred the first version I made in December. This may be because I used my tried and true carrots trick to lessen the acidity (put chunks of carrots in to cook, then REMOVE them before serving the sauce and discard … the carrots absorb the acid.)
Do you make homemade pasta sauce or use the jar? I’m so guilty of using the jar, but I have really enjoyed trying these yummy homemade versions recently.
