After falling in love with our Crock Pot and using it for countless bowls of beef chili, we decided it was time to branch out. I'm a big fan of pasts with meat sauces, so when Katie proposed fettuccine with bolognese sauce prepared in the crock pot, I couldn't say no. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did! The only change I'd suggest is to try to use non-lean pork if possible. Ours was extremely lead, and therefore tasted a bit dry. Or, if your local marked doesn't have veal, we'd suggest making up the difference with more ground beef rather than more pork. Enjoy!
