Pasta With Slow Cooked Ragu Sauce

Here’s a lovely classic pasta and sauce recipe that can be prepared in your slow cooker.

A great meal for fussy eaters, as you can serve the sauce on top or on the side if that’s what they prefer.

For children who are less fond of meat, they may prefer to start with just some of the juices over their pasta and a small amount of the ragu served on the side of the plate.

Encourage fussy eaters to try the meal by role modelling enjoying the food yourself at the family table.
