When was the last time you made a great meat sauce? Some simple meals are the most memorable.  A while back, the test kitchen experienced a rigorous day. It fairly throbbed with the batches of cookies and squares that had passed through its portals since early morning. Coincidentally, two of my three boys had gone to bed very early, leaving the tired baker (me) and my (then 8 year old) middle son still up, and hungry, and in a quandry of what to fix quickly. Pasta again I guess….but how to make it special. We set water to the boil, dimmed all the lights, laid out our best China and wine glass, and tall, elegant candles, all on a Damask white table cloth. I took special pains with the meat sauce - usually we toss pasta with olive oil and garlic alone - and the result was spaghetti a la Bolognaise, classically made on a tabletop Martha Stewart would endorse. Or so I thought.  “Mom, said my guest diner, ‘this is just like the meal Lady and Tramp had in the movie!” Music cue: O Solo Mio, Disney credits and garlic bread. To this day, my middle son still recalls our impromtu romantic pasta meal. My other two sons are still smarting over being (two) odd men out.
