- 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 to 7 minutes until tender. Add garlic; cook for 1 minute. Add ground beef; cook, stirring occasionally, 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.
- Cover slow cooker, turn to low, and cook ingredients for about 4 hours until sauce thickens. Skim fat from the top of the sauce. Adjust seasonings with salt and black pepper.
- Add cooked spaghetti to the sauce as well as enough of the pasta cooking water to loosen the sauce; stir to combine.
