A month or two back I made Cook’s Illustrated’s “Lasagna Bolognese, Simplified” and love, love, loved the result. I thought most of what I loved about it was the meat sauce and so I set out to make that as part of a different meal. The meat sauce is good, though not quite as good as I recall it being with the lasagna. Others thought it was very tasty though.

Notes
12 gathered for dinner this week (8 adults; 4 kids).

We’ve hit 2 full boxes of pasta (at least shells) to feed our gang as the children continue to grow.

The basic sauce for the pasta came from Smitten Kitchen. I was turned on to the uber-simple recipe by my friend, Apple.
