While the broccoli rabe looked wonderful, there's just too darned much sauce and cheese on the veal and chicken, and way, way too much sauce on the side of spaghetti. Ripetizione dopo me: La salsa è un condimento. La salsa è un condimento. La salsa è un condimento.

I agree completely and so would Mario. Something about the American way to over sauce and over cheese.

That's what I do if I'm eating in that sort of Italian restaurant.

That's one of those smallish bowls such as the ones used for sides of slaw or cottage cheese or applesauce.
