    Awesome, easy, did this with a smaller amount of mince so reduced quantities of everything. Left out the sugar, used mixed herbs in place of spaghetti bolognese seasoning. Will be a regular recipe.

  2. You can’t just put the mince and sliced veggies in the slow cooker with the sauce etc to cook for 4-6hrs? Do you have to cook them first?
