Frugal Friday: Spaghetti Bolognese, Slow Cooker Style!

This is my new go-to recipe when I need something uber-easy that is a guaranteed win with the kids. I like it because it is less than 20 minutes hands on, and very inexpensive to make. We had this for dinner for our family of 2 adults and 2 children last week, and there were no leftovers! Speaking of kids, please forgive the elbow macaroni in the photo; that’s what kind of pasta was requested the night I took the picture!
