I love a good bolognese sauce, but I don't want to have to be at home all day to make it. This slow cooker bolognese is AMAZING! Just brown the Italian sausage and throw everything in the slow cooker and let it simmer all day. This stuff is delicious! Better than any restaurant! We love to serve it over fresh pasta to an easy weeknight meal that tastes like a million bucks!

I used a can of San Marzano tomatoes in this recipe. I HIGHLY recommend splurging on the San Marzano tomatoes. They really make the sauce. You can find them at Whole Foods, Fresh Market or Sprouts. I just loaded up on them from Eataly when we were in Chicago. SO good!!!

Give this a try when you want an easy comfort meal. Some crusty garlic bread and a quick salad is all you need with this sauce. This tastes great leftover the next day. I like to freeze the leftovers for a SUPER quick meal later! Enjoy!
