   Notes:  This was an experiment born out of a messy kitchen and a lack
   of meat in the freezer.  It smelled very good while cooking, but was
   actually quite bland.  The vegetables absorbed the flavor of the
   sauce, but the pasta didn't seem affected at all.  Beef strips, or
   maybe a night in the fridge, might help this dish.
