This dish will bring you back to your childhood.

Ingredients:

6 slices bacon, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 lbs ground beef
1 can tomato paste, 6 oz.
1/3 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, plus more for serving
1 cup milk
Kosher salt, to taste
Ground black pepper, to taste
1 lb spaghetti noodles, cooked, water reserved

Directions:

  1. Using the stovetop-safe insert from a slow cooker, cook the bacon for 7 to 10 minutes over medium-high heat until crisp. Spoon off all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon fat. Add onion; cook for 5-7 minutes until tender. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add ground beef and cook for about 5 minutes until beef is no longer pink. Add and stir in tomato paste, 1/3 cup cheese and milk. Season mixture with salt and then place insert into slow cooker base.
