Slow Cooker Beef Goulash and Pasta

When muddy wellies, red wine and warm fires are giving you the winter feelings, this is a gorgeous slow cook to lean into. I love the combination of paprika and soured cream, it reminds me of a simple pork goulash I learned to do as a student. Posh student, I was. Use a cheaper cut … Read More

Gnocchi Bake
