Slow Cooking Potato Bolognese

Slow Cooking Potato Bolognese

As I was writing this post my husband Howard walked past the computer and said, ‘Oh Potato Bolognese, that sounds good!’ I turned to him and gave him a strange look. Howard looked confused and asked why I was looking at him strangely.

At this point I was very confused. I had made this meal, admittedly it was a little while ago, but I’m sure he told me when he was eating that it was a very tasty dish. I told Howard he had eaten this meal but unfortunately he didn’t remember.

To be honest, I do make a lot of different meals so it shouldn’t really surprise me that Howard doesn’t remember every single one. Although this was a delicious dinner that we all enjoyed. The reason I enjoyed it so much was it didn’t take to long to prepare. Then I left all the ingredients to cook in my slow cooker. A perfect way to have dinner on the table without too much fuss.

Slow Cooking Potato Bolognese

Slow Cooking Potato Bolognese was a scrummy dinner that feed my little family and me. We ate this meal on a Sunday evening after a busy day. I promise you we all enjoyed it at that time. It’s a meal I will have to cook again to jog my families memory. It’s a great dish to cook when you don’t have much time in the evening. You could also batch cook this meal and make enough to freeze for another occasion. It makes an easy mid week or weekend dish. We loved it and we hope you do too. However you decide to eat this dish, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
