“*UVC - "unidentifiable vegetable content". Posted across from - thanks Emma. This bolognaise has a lot of extra veggies hidden in the sauce - we've had no trouble getting our small kids to eat it. Can be done without the slowcooker step, but that's what really makes this recipe taste good. If your kids notice and refuse grated zucchini, peel the green off before you grate it. Sauce also freezes well for a quick meal on a busy night”
