Crock Pot Wednesday

I love pasta, and what a wonderful comfort food on a cool Fall day.  Did I mention I loooove pasta!   ;)

Bolognese Sauce

5 strips bacon, finely chopped
2 Tbsp fresh basil, finely minced
1 1/2 tsp fresh thyme, finely minced
1 1/2 tsp fresh rosemary
3/4 cup(s) onion, chopped
1 1/2 pound(s) ground chuck
1 cup(s) dry red wine
1 can(s) (28 ounce) whole peeled tomatoes, roughly chopped
2 Tbsp garlic, finely minced
2 Tbsp sugar
1 bay leaf
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper

To make the sauce:  Cook the bacon and herbs in a large skillet over med-high heat until the bacon is soft (about 4 minutes).  Add the onions and continue to cook until they aregolden brown.  Add the chuck; stir occasionally until browned.  Add wine, bring sauce to a simmer and cook for 2 to 3 more minutes.  Transfer the mixture to a clow cooker and add the remaining ingredients.  Set at high and allow to slow-cook for 5 to 6 hours.  Serve hot over pasta.  YUM!
