Crock Pot Bolognese

It is hard to find time to try new recipes these days. I finally tried out a new crockpot recipe that made enough to stock the freezer. While this goes against my usual crockpot recipes that just have you turn it on, dump everything in and come back to a finished dinner. I was able to save a few steps and buy pre chopped onions, but can also find pre chopped celery and carrots. You can adjust the flavor based on your preference but this is a great go to sauce that doesn't require you to stand over the stove all day to get flavor.

Crock Pot Bolognese
Adapted from: Skinnytaste

1 large white onion
2 celery stalks, minced
2 carrots, minced
2lbs ground turkey or meat of choice
(2) 28oz cans crushed tomatoes
1 tsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp dried oregano
freshly ground black pepper
1 bay leaf

In a large deep sauté pan, add onions, celery, carrots and cook on medium low heat until soft, about 5 minutes.

Increase to medium-high; add meat, season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and oregano. Saute until meat is browned. Drain the fat.

Add meat mixture to crockpot, then add tomatoes and bay leaf. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. Serve over pasta and can freeze leftover sauce.

Pin It!
