Apres-Ski Hearty Spaghetti Sauce

cooking italian pasta spaghetti bolognese

This is a perfect meal after a day on the slopes, or to feed a hungry crew.  A sure crowd pleaser. I also love this meal because I can freeze it and then throw it in the crock pot.  It’s warm and waiting for us when we get home.
