This recipe makes a LOT of bolognaise sauce which is excellent because it is cheap, tasty, versatile, and freezes exceptionally well. Use your leftovers on top of baked potatoes, on toast, in cheesy beef pastitsio, or mix through hot pasta and bake with grated cheese on top.

If you’d prefer not to use a slow cooker, you can follow the same instructions and cook, covered, on a stove top for 1 hour.

Add some of your favourite vegetables towards the end of the cooking process. Think mushrooms, capsicum, zucchini, etc.
