Yinzers definitely have a sense of humor.  Who else would eat pastrami on white bread with coleslaw, French fries and a nasty slice of tomato and think it was divine?

 
I think there's a passage warning against that in the Old Testament. It's right under the one that prohibits pastrami and mayo.

Something I only do very rarely

a good pinch of herbs de provence

you'd be surprised what a mere hint of lavender does to a spaghetti sauce

 
I often do that too. It does adda a nice light touch of character to it.

My secret ingredient in my pasta sauce is "My Italian Mother In-Law" Hands down she makes the best Bolognese i have ever had. She makes lots and supplies family and friends with her heavenly,meaty succulent, dish licking good sauce. and almost always has a few pints in her freezer (for emergency situations)

Weatherman Tex Antoine (who became infamous for killing his career and almost single-handedly killing the "happy news" fad of the 1970's with an especially ill-timed rape joke on the air) said that he got the name "Tex" from going into a Jewish deli in New York and ordering a corned beef on white with mayonnaise.

I do this thing where I make a fresh sauce of say meatballs. Freeze leftovers and then the next time I make a sauce of sausage, that gets added to the meatball sauce. And over time I might throw in a leftover pork chop, a chicken breast or pretty much anything else. Then one day heat it up and scarf it down. I even eat it sans pasta. I like it as sort of an SOS over a good crusty bread.  My old g/f called it the Never Ending Sauce.

Well, I am surprised that I haven't posted on this thread yet. My "secret" ingredient for pasta sauce is simple. Fresh herbs instead of dried, added early and at presentation makes all the difference! A little Chianti or balsamic vinegar to give it depth as well. That's all...

Having only one sauce for pasta is akin to owning one handbag...or one pair of shoes.

A couple drops of balsamic vinegar, maybe two per quart of sauce.
