Put all ingredients in slow cooker and switch on grin

You can fry off your mince and onions before putting it in if you like, and depending on the at content of you rmince it might be better but you don't actually have to. Just shove mince, onions, garlic, carrots and celery (or whatever random combination of veg you happen to have around) in the cooker, add your tin of tomatoes but not any extra liquid and a squeeze of tomato puree and leave it. Seasoning is best added towards the end of cooking with a slow cooker so wait until you get home to add herbs, salt, pepper etc.

Thank you it's the liquid I always get wrong. I have 700g of beef mince do should I go 1 tin or 1.5 tins of tomatoes?

No idea grin. With spag bol you want the liquid from the tomatoes/wine and such to be just at the top of your mince and veg but not quite covering. If in doubt go with less, it will still cook fine and you can always add a little towards the end of cooking.
